Date: October 21, 2017

Instructor: Keith F. Miller, Jr., Teacher Consultant

Schedule: The workshops will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Location: UGA Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

Description: As educators, we feel the pressure to have all the answers, especially during such uncertain times. But the key is not grappling with that pressure ourselves, but empowering our students to do so, fearlessly. During this interactive session, educators will:

1) Experience best practices for creating safe spaces--in and outside of school--where ALL youth can become confident writers and performers.

2) Learn creative tools and strategies for empowering youth to release the bottled thunder from within--and with it, their own revolution.

3) Write their very own spoken word pieces and realize that even educators can also pen their own revolution.
