B20 Hard Talk: Tough Conversations About Teaching Writing and About Learning

Using techniques from Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, participants will engage in a variety of dramatizations of events that require engagement in “tough conversations” about race and pedagogy. Attendees will be invited to practice effective methods for opening and sustaining dialogue during sometimes uncomfortable moments when talk about race, class, language, and pedagogy surface. Participants are encouraged to visit Theatre of the Oppressed before coming to the workshop.
