Join us for Jennifer Kathleen Johnson Ph.D. Candidate in English Education, Arts and humanities for the IUME Colloquia Series at Teachers College in Harlem, New York. Jennifer will be sharing the findings and implications from her multi-year critical ethnographic case study with Black and Latin @ youths, teaching artists, and professors who participated in a critical debate apprenticeship in which students were supported in blending oral language, Hip-Hop, and academic discourse to create original research and public presentations in which participants addressed some of the most pressing issues facing their generation. Drawing from research in English language arts, debate, and hip-hop based education, and grounded in sociocultural theories of language and learning, critical education theories, and new literacies, Jennifer will discuss some of the ways in which educators can assist students in leveraging oral language, Hip-Hop, and new literacies for academic achievement, self-advocacy, creative and critical knowledge production, and social justice.
