"Poetry as Protest: Dissent through Song and Literature"

July 20-25, Boise State University

Idaho teachers are invited to apply to attend the 2020 teacher institute focusing on Poetry and Protest.  Participants will explore the history of dissent and historical influences on contemporary authors.  Teachers will discuss ways to help students become engaged in the study and creation of poetry and will examine several genres, including protest music, rap, and slam poetry.
