“I’ve seen twelve new ways to think about this text – as technology, as evolution, as modern art, etc.  I’ve also seen how I can have deep conversations with the texts as a whole by looking at just one short passage.”

March 27, 2020

The Bard Institute for Writing & Thinking will be in residence at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Friday, March 27, 2020.  We will be offering our core workshops:  Writing & Thinking and Writing to Learn.

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.
