Conference Outlines and Handouts

Even if you can’t hear Dr. Susan Wise Bauer in person, with these conference handouts, it’s like you’re right there with her!

When we present lectures, workshops, and conference sessions, some of you are taking notes so quickly that it looks like your hands will fall off. We care about you too much to let you do that, so here are handouts and outlines from our presentations.

MP3s of most of these talks are available from Well-Trained Mind Press.
