Join us for our Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe teacher workshop featuring international and national poetry slam champion, Gayle Danley. Enjoy light refreshments, a guided tour of the special exhibition and a two-hour working session with Ms. Danley. Using the special exhibition as a catalyst for discussion and reflection, this master teaching artist will guide you through her 5 Steps to Slam writing process to evoke powerful and personal connections between the art and the writer. Slam combines movement, voice, drama and the written word for an unforgettable spoken word experience. This is an ideal arts integration workshop focusing on the fusion of social studies, language and visual arts. All techniques can be taken back to the classroom to use with your students.
