IWT Core Workshops in New York City

“I'm glad that we wrote as much as we did: some of us—especially me—don't give ourselves enough time to practice what we are trying to teach.”

The Bard Institute for Writing & Thinking will be in residence at The Hewitt School for Girls in New York, NY on Friday, February 22, 2019.  We will be offering four of our core workshops:  Writing & Thinking, Writing to Learn, Thinking Historically through Writing; Case Studies in American History, and Writing to Learn in the STEM Disciplines.

The Institute for Writing and Thinking promotes pedagogical innovations that, in the words of former director Teresa Vilardi, “emphasize the need for teachers to develop a practice for writing-based teaching, not simply a collection of strategies.”  Such IWT practices as Writing to Read comprehension techniques, develop new habits of mind in both teachers and students – an approach linked to developing new cognitive understandings of what we want our students to learn and how we want them to learn it, rather than in how-to’s or one-size-fits-all guidebooks for teaching.
