This evening, May 21, at 7:00pm Ron Berger, Chief Academic Office at EL will be giving a presentation on service-learning and project-based learning at New Bedford, MA's Whaling Museum. Many educators in the area have read some (or all!) of Ron's books, and are eager to be in attendance.

"Will Gardner, executive director of the Alma del Mar Charter School in the city’s North End, attended a workshop with Ron Berger in 2010. 'To this day, I still keep the scientific drawings of a damselfly that I worked so hard on in that workshop,' he said... 'Often, to get to their best work, (scholars) have to commit to doing four or five or even 10 drafts of their writing,' Gardner said. 'The persistence and the patience that that takes is very important.'"
