Lucille Clifton Seminar
The Furious Flower Poetry Center at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA is hosting an intensive week-long seminar this summer on the poetry of Lucille Clifton. The seminar is for high school and college teachers interested in teaching African American Poetry.
There are scholarships and professional development credits for those who participate. I often hear from high school English instructors that they wish they could teach poetry to their students. This seminar is a great way to study the work of a renowned American poet and leave with lesson plans you cn use in the classroom.
