About BLTN

Welcome to the Working Site of the Bread Loaf Teacher Network.


The Bread Loaf Teacher Network supports teachers who want to collaborate with each other, their students, and Bread Loaf faculty to think, read, and write about about literature, ideas and issues. BLTN members are engaged with their students in intellectually rich, locally meaningful conversations and inquiries across difference that lead to cultural understandings and social change.

This site showcases some of the current work of the BLTN and provides a common work space for participants and partners. Below is a brief explanation of this site's contents. For a more comprehensive overview of the BLTN and its role within the Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English, visit the Middlebury Bread Loaf site.
