Rock the Word
What is "Rock the Word"? In the words of e.E. Charlton-Trujillo:
Welcome to the Creative Revolution, where every student is a writer and every voice counts. In a two day, intensive and hands on approach, five multiple award-winning authors will empower nearly 1,000 students to harness their creative voice and never be counted out again! Our team of authors are frequent speakers at schools, conferences, and for some, alternative education and juvenile detention centers. They share a passion for writing, reading and reaching into any student and elevating their innate storytelling abilities.
Rock The Word is designed to light kids on fire. The program is designed to address topics such as bullying, belonging, and channeling voice onto the page. This is an opportunity to explore topics that are relevant to youth to reach them where they are. The most reluctant reader and writer will be changed after time spent with these authors because their approach is authentic and engaging.
Hint: I "blame" Matt de la Peña for catalyzing this awesomeness!
