I am so pleased to welcome Carrie-Ann Biondi to our Advisory Board!
Dr. Biondi is an expert in Socratic Practice, the teaching method we use for the collaborative seminars of The Great Connections. If you want to read a deeply considered and informative account of this method, try her “Socratic Teaching: Beyond The Paper Chase.“
I will be interviewing her in March – be on the lookout for our Conversation With Marsha video. You will learn about the method and how she works with students to achieve the best learning for them.
She is a prolific writer, with many essays on Aristotle’s thought, and topics from children’s rights to designing tests for higher order thinking. Additionally, she serves as Book Review Editor for the journal Reason Papers.
Currently, she is an Adolescent Program Manager and Coach at Higher Ground Education as well as a Humanities Guide for their Academy of Thought and Industry high school.
She has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Bowling Green State University. Dr. Biondi taught college philosophy courses for 26 years at several universities including Bowling Green and John Jay College of Criminal Justice, as well as thirteen years at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City where she was Associate Professor and Chair of the History, Philosophy & Religious Studies Department.
Thank you, Dr. Biondi, for joining us! We look forward to availing ourselves of your rich wisdom.
