“It Was Written”: A Workshop for Teachers

This interactive teacher workshop will focus on the evolution of hip hop culture, its history, and the recognition of its highly influential, yet often overlooked, contributions to the literary canon in the United States. Participants will discuss this evolution while exploring their own creativity through activities that can be easily adapted to a classroom setting.

This workshop is facilitated by Unique Robinson, poet/MC and Director of the MFA Community Arts Program at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

All educators are welcome, but this content is best suited for middle and high school educators.
