This workshop is designed for teachers who are familiar with the strategies introduced in Writing and Thinking or Writing to Learn (or in similar workshops elsewhere) and who want to focus on helping students write essays.

“Inquiry into Essay” focuses on the analytic essay as a finished product, emphasizing ways to pull together fragments of good writing and information into a coherent whole.

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.

The July workshops offer a retreat in which participants learn new writing practices, read diverse texts, and talk with teachers from around the world on the Bard College campus.

“It is an issue that affects the whole of humanity and every living being on this earth.” This workshop will explore how writing-to-learn strategies can help students build their understanding of the urgent, multifaceted, and deeply interdisciplinary topic of global climate change.

Participants will work with a range of texts that engage with political, geographical, economic, and scientific aspects of the climate crisis, and explore the pedagogical challenges that arise when teaching current hot-button topics.

Working on their own essays, participants observe how inquiring habits of mind help determine the shape of what they write.

This workshop is offered in response to requests from teachers who would like to devote time to their own writing within a congenial community.

The 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.
