What does it mean to teach from a place of love? Middle and high school educators are invited to join Tamara Butler, Ph.D., assistant professor in English Education and African American Studies, for a workshop that will explore the concept of belonging through written and visual messages.

In connection with the collection exhibition, Visual Citizenship, Butler will lead discussion, reflection, and a hands-on activity that encourage educators to mobilize notions of care through letter writing and collage.

Learn about women of color writers, build skills in critical textual selection, and understand various ways creativity can be engaged as activism through a lens of deliberate responsibility toward one another. This workshop is recommended for middle and high school educators. Cost of registration ($15) covers a breakfast of bagels, coffee, and tea. SCHECHs are available.
