IWT Workshops @ Maybeck High School
“I have attended many Bard workshops these past 2 decades, and I leave each one full, having digested a variety of options, reminded of how much can be accomplished when unburdened by the need to do it all.”

The Bard Institute for Writing & Thinking will be in residence at Maybeck High School in Berkeley, California on Monday, March 9, 2020.  We will be offering our core workshops:  Writing & ThinkingWriting to LearnThinking Historically through Writing and Writing to Learn in the STEM Disciplines. This year we will also offer a new workshop: Inquiry into the Essay!

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.
