About the Event
How do we use the power of language to build inclusive cultures?
Poet, activist, and educator, Denice Frohman will deliver a performance and talk about the importance of building an intentional relationship with language in the classroom and beyond. In this 45-minute session, Frohman will use poetry as an entry-point for understanding identity formation, critical thinking, and how we can all reevaluate the stories we tell ourselves, the stories told about us, and the stories we tell about each other. Educators will understand how to use the power of art and storytelling to address social justice issues in their schools and communities; building a learning culture that encourages students to use their creative voices. The performance will be followed by a live Q&A session with Denice Frohman.
