Creative Strategies for Strengthening Communities

Type: Professional Learning

Program Availability: In-Person, Virtual

Description

In this workshop, participants will encounter an interactive multimodal learning environment focused on the intersection of creativity and culturally responsive pedagogies. Through the use of devised theater techniques and spoken word, participants will deepen their awareness of how their own personal identities influence pedagogical choices and instruction. By investigating strategies for creating equitable classrooms that prioritize racial and historically responsive literacies, participants will gain a beginning foundation to imagine, design, and implement relevant teaching content that leverages current socio-economic political movements and each student’s unique identities.
