WHAT OUR PARTICIPANTS SAY
—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.
