Discussion-Based Teaching: Exploring the Harkness Method

September 15, 2023

Join the Upper School Humanities Team at Charles Wright Academy as we experience and explore the student-centered, discussion-based Harkness pedagogy. Led by Rebecca Moore of the Phillips Exeter Academy, this single-day workshop offers participants the opportunity to participate in discussion-based pedagogy as students and then reflect on the experience as educators. Each attendee will experience several different techniques for facilitating discussion-based learning, creating spaces for belonging and equity, and offering assessments of student learning.


This single-day workshop will include a light continental breakfast and a catered lunch.

Wednesday, November 29, 2023, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Price: $600
