Life as Primary Text: Deep Dive into Youth Speaks’ Core Pedagogical Constructs

Michelle Lee
Youth Speaks
Friday, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm -- Rm B-256

One of the most powerful tools we employ is the idea that young peoples’ lives serve as the primary text we explore. We ask young people to process ideas through their own experiences and understandings, rather than the understandings they are told they should know. In this session, we will take a deep dive into Youth Speaks’ unique arts-based education methodology (Safe Space and Life as Primary Text).
