These master educators will model practices through participatory workshops, and students will form meaningful learning communities around these sessions, online discussion cohorts, related course readings, and the sharing of personal stories. Our first workshop of the semester commences with a session led by TC alumna Dr. Lauren Kelly. “Who freed me? Lincoln or Cadillac?”: Developing Critical Hip Hop Literacies in the Secondary Classroom This workshop explores a culturally relevant approach to English Education by examining Hip Hop lyrics as literary texts. It seeks to train classroom practitioners in strategies and lessons for infusing state-mandated standards, such as Common Core, into lessons employing critical hip-hop literacy and critical media literacy, encouraging participants to decode popular texts for meaning and to use these texts as an access point for conversations about the social factors that influence young people’s livesand communities, working towards the development of adolescents’ critical consciousness within the secondary classroom. This workshop will model a lesson that is applicable across multiple grade levels and can be used with a variety of popular texts. Using the jigsaw activity structure, participants will work first in small groups to decode and discuss one of the songs. Then larger groups will meet to find common themes across the texts. As a whole group, we will discuss the implications of the ideas conveyed in the texts for communities of color, for Hip Hop identified youth, and for schooling practices. . . .
