Frank Sentwali to Speak at Fall Workshop

Sentwali.jpgJoin us on October 16 for a challenging, yet relaxing, Saturday workshop for
past participants of the MWP Summer Institute.

At this year's workshop, "Exploring the Boundaries of Literacy Education," ideas will be popping (or maybe hip-hopping!) after the morning performance of "Enterbrainment Live!" by Frank Sentwali, the creator of Edu-Poetic Entertainment, a Twin Cities spoken word and music ensemble. John Albright (ISI 2005), a teacher who has incorporated Frank's program in his curriculum, will also share with us the benefits of spoken-word literacy activities.

Afternoon activities will include breakout sessions devoted to discussions of various hot topics in literacy: Diverse Learners, Common Core Standards, Digital Writing, and Writing Assessment

WHEN: Saturday, October 16th, 2010
WHERE: U of MN Continuing Education and Conference Center, St. Paul Campus
COST: $60 -- includes parking, breakfast, lunch and snacks
