Virtual Summer Teachers Institute 2021 — Poetry in an Antiracist Classroom proposal submission deadline
The Poetry Foundation seeks to place essential poems before the largest possible audience, serve all poetry communities, and is committed to antiracist practices and policies. In July 2021, the Poetry Foundation will run a virtual institute for over 200 teachers, ranging from Kindergarten to the Community College level, who will learn new ways to teach poetry to their students. The institute is free to attend. This will be the 6th annual institute expanded to a broad, virtual educator audience.
The theme for the 2021 Institute is “Poetry in an Antiracist Classroom,” and the Foundation seeks presentation proposals from experienced educators, teaching artists, and visiting poets to present on aspects of teaching that give other teachers practical ideas on how to combine poetry teaching with antiracist practices.
