July WorkshopsThe July weeklong workshops help teachers deepen their understanding of writing-based teaching, its theory and practices, and its application in the classroom. Each workshop focuses on a particular form of writing—the essay, the academic paper, creative nonfiction, poetry—or on writing-based teaching in a particular subject area, such as history, science and math, or grammar.
We are pleased to once again offer our July Workshops online. Online workshops will run from Monday July 12–Friday July 16, from 9am–1pm, including a 30-minute break.
Bard IWT workshops focus on reading and writing in collaboration and in conversation. Participants will experiment with writing practices that can be adapted to their classrooms, both online or in-person. Please note that the online workshops will not be a survey of different platforms, apps, and tools—rather, they will focus on how teachers can creatively implement writing-to-read and writing-to-learn practices using widely accessible tools.
