medieval teachingInstructors – Two Quick Notes:

1) PLEASE CHECK IN when you get on site!
Please be sure to check in with the area(s) in which you plan to teach and/or at GW Class Info Point (located at Artisan’s Row) when you  arrive on site with the areas for which you signed up to teach. This will re-assure the class coordinator and give you an opportunity to obtain and last minute information.

2) CLASS LIMITS – Please be fair and honor your limits!
There are no sign up sheets for this war. For classes with limits, the first students to arrive will get a seat/kit/hands-on opportunity. PLEASE be fair to your students and honor your class limits.

If you wish to schedule another session of your class on site, or a “follow up” time for others to see you outside of your class, we are happy to help, and we can advertise it via print and digital media.
