THE HARKNESS METHOD

The Harkness Method, used in many humanities classrooms, is an established and cherished way of instruction which fosters students’ curiosity, initiative, personal confidence and problem-solving. Students sit around a table and the teacher serves as a moderator for a lively discussion in which everyone participates. Students have equal opportunity to provide input and lead the class, allowing for healthy debate, discussion and meaningful homework.

Episcopal’s endowed fund for Harkness teaching provides ongoing funds to ensure the effective integration of the Harkness method in Episcopal’s curriculum. The fund provides training, evaluation, and support for teachers using the Harkness method and helps to spread and maintain the culture of Harkness teaching.
