Einstein language arts faculty spends its summer vacation writing and thinking in New York

e-Connections Post

Albert Einstein Middle School’s language arts faculty spent a week in July at a small liberal arts college in New York participating in the renowned Bard Institute for Writing and Thinking.

Giovanni Boone, Peggie Clapper, Scott Combrink and Cynthia Leriche immersed themselves in inventive writing strategies that help students gain a better understanding of complex ideas, historical documents, literary texts and mathematical problems.

They worked together on pertinent texts and experimented with the use of student journals and classroom writing assignments to stimulate engagement with the language, ideas and issues.

The teachers will bring their summer learning back to their students as Einstein embarks on its first school-wide unit of study in September.
