“I see that an academic paper has more value and use than I thought, and that it isn’t as narrow a form as I thought … I was really moved and delighted by how terrific this experience was.”  “Teaching the Academic Paper,” July 2011 
—College Philosophy teacher 

It's been a few years since I've been to a Bard workshop. It's good to be reminded of what I value and why—good to have a chance to share and learn from others. I'm taking away lots to reflect on and think about. My teaching of this novel will be affected in many positive ways. Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn: Facing the Challenge of Teaching an American Classic, April 2011
—Grade 10-11 English teacher
