IWT July Weeklong Workshops

Bard IWT July Weeklong Workshops offer teachers an opportunity to develop an understanding of "writing-based teaching," its theory and practices, and its application in the classroom. Workshops focus on a variety of methods for teaching different forms of writing—essay, academic paper, creative nonfiction, poetry—or for using writing to teach history, visual texts, or grammar.

During the weeklong workshops, teachers live in single rooms on campus, eat meals together, and enjoy the beautiful setting and lively atmosphere of Annandale-on-Hudson in the summer. During the course of the week, workshop groups meet for thirteen 90-minute sessions, beginning Sunday evening, July 5, and continuing every day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except Wednesday, when classes end at 1:00 p.m. The week’s workshops will conclude on Friday, July 10, at 1:00 p.m.
