“Schooling Ourselves”: Hip-Hop & Literacy Improvement
Saturday, November 7, 2009

Hip-Hop: It’s the language your students speak and listen to every day. Understand its roots and use it to help students read, write, speak, listen and think critically and with empathy. By building competencies using lyrics to popular Hip Hop music, participants will examine new methods of culturally responsive teaching, instructional strategies and conflict resolution geared toward students of all learning styles. New knowledge, skills and attitudes will enable participants to better serve their increasingly diverse students. Offered in partnership with Art Sanctuary.
*For educators of grades 5-12

How Teens and Tweens Think, Function & Learn
