We’ll begin the day with a welcome and quick check-in. Then we’ll move to breakout sessions to learn together. Join us to feel connected and reenergized for the work ahead.
This session will feature My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem.
In this session, participants will reflect on ways their socialized intersectional identities have engaged with white supremacy and how an awareness of these contributions can lead to healing and accountability. They will also have the opportunity to claim their agency to heal personally and professionally in an effort to cultivate more humanizing teaching, learning and living experiences.
This session will lead participants through Pop Up Poetry writing prompts that facilitate building a community of writers and that allow us to develop personal voice through language play. Through interacting with mentor texts by living poets, pre-writing strategies, and poetry prompts, participants are provided with fresh ideas and resources they can take back to their classrooms and implement tomorrow.
Our Fall Conference 2022 call for proposals is open! Join us to brainstorm, collaborate, and plan a proposal to present in October 2022.
