Can writing and words truly make a difference? Can the spoken word really make change? Through this session, explore multidisciplinary techniques for engaging your students in the writing process. Help them to find their ‘voice’ and explore the delights and possibilities of the human voice through performing their own words shaped by themes they are passionate about. Imagine Greek chorus, spoken word, rant, hip hop, plus a little movement/improv thrown in for fun. Encourage even the reluctant writer to believe in wordpower. Gail will take you from idea generation to creation to performance as a model for your own classroom. Join her as she guides you along a YouthWrite path to inspire youth to write and raise their voices for (a) change!
