Join the University of Houston Clear Lake College of Education, with the College of Human Science & Humanities and the Neumann Library, as part of the Lift Every Voice grant, in celebrating and amplifying African American voices through poetry. On February 12, 2021 Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton, scholar, educator, and former Houston Poet Laureate will lead a teaching seminar entitled "The Craft of African American Poetry: A crash course in lesson planning", followed by a panel discussion with Kimberly Gay, Head of Reference and Information Services at Prairie View University, John B. Coleman Library, and Dr. Wanalee Romero, Clinical Assistant Professor of First-Year Seminar and Humanities.
Teaching seminar description: In city as diverse as Houston, every part of education should be attempting to provide an inclusive roadmap for students to engage. But educators often are challenged to find resources and shift their prior approaches to provide this. In this 45-minute session, we will discuss texts for inclusion, the importance of a varied and diverse approach, and plan a lesson together that you can immediately implement with your course.
