Each June hundreds of educators from across the country make the journey to the Teacher Self-Care Conference that inspires their practice and rejuvenates their hearts. They leave with strong strategies and best practices for taking care of themselves in the midst of the whirlwind that teaching has become. Join us to find new teaching friends, new connections with education luminaries, and enough self-care strategies to harmonize their year.
In 2019, the Teacher Self-Care Annual Conference is scheduled for June 21-22, 2019! This year our theme is, "The Spirit of a Teacher" where we’ll be hearing from groundbreaking speakers, cutting-edge workshops, and seminars that address what teachers need.  Before signing up for your session, please purchase your tickets.

How to Use Hip Hop as Storytelling Tool for Minority Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the opening track to her album, Cardi B emphatically rhymes, “I’m not telling you to do it, I’m just telling my story.” The art of storytelling is self-care for students, especially if they are telling their own stories. However, many of our students identify more with Cardi B than with Capote, and need to feel heard in their authentic voices. In this workshop, teachers will learn how to teach writing skills through hip-hop music, and reflect on how storytelling is self-care for both student and teacher. Teachers will leave with lessons they can implement to build community in their classrooms.
