NYSEC Conference 2022 – A Year of Professional Learning

Understanding Diversity: Building Trust, Culture and Reflective Practice

The Power of Spoken Word Poetry in the Secondary Classroom, presented by Bridgette Gallagher

February 5, 2022, 9-10:45 am

In this co-taught workshop with one veteran teacher and one first year teacher, we will write, examine mentor texts, and explore the use of spoken word poetry as a way to showcase diverse voices, poetry prompts, and a close reading of the written word. Participants should be ready to study poetry and write some of their own. Sharing your pieces will be optional but encouraged!
