Writing Well, Thinking Clearly is free of the artificiality that marks many writing programs… The Cana Academy workshop on writing was the perfect complement to the guide. Jeannette DeCelles-Zwerneman’s time with our writing team deepened the knowledge of even our most experienced teachers… We came away invigorated—alive to new and wonderful possibilities for our students.

Cana Academy’s faculty master class on Socratic seminar instruction helped our honors faculty grow both in the tangible arts of close reading, crafting questions, and leading discussions as well as in the intangible elements of joy, open-hearted laughter, and friendship that make for genuine education...I can’t recommend Cana’s faculty master class any more highly!

We were thrilled with the inaugural seminar in Cana Academy’s VISIONS program! Every person I spoke with thoroughly enjoyed it. Many were surprised by how much they enjoyed discussing Chagall’s works, since it was their first exposure to modern art. This Cana seminar series is a real blessing to our community.
