Teaching Poetry as a Practice of Freedom with Peggy Robles-Alvarado
Zoom Workshop | Saturday, March 19 | 10 am- 2 pm Eastern
bell hooks wrote that teaching is a sacred act and as instructors “our work is not merely to share information but to share in the intellect and spiritual growth of our students.” Teaching poetry can be an act of mutual healing and liberation. In this professional development training session centered in poetry, participants will engage in holistic approaches to teaching that encompass mind, body, and spirit. Led by award-winning poet and tenured educator, Peggy Robles-Alvarado, participants will engage with pedagogical practices, mentor texts, movement, and composition to promote learning that fosters mutual respect and unbound creativity that empowers both student and instructor.
