Join Marcelle Haddix, author of “What’s Radical about Youth Writing?: Seeing and Honoring Youth Writers and Their Literacies” for a conversation about her experience leading an interest-driven, asset-focused, out-of-school writing program that has implications for the classroom. Haddix is joined by educators Michelle King, Chris Rogers, and the organizers of Marginal Syllabus, Remi Kalir and Joe Dillon, for a discussion of the text, which is the featured article this month for Literacy, Equity + Remarkable Notes (LEARN), a project exploring the intersection of literacy and equity in partnership with the National Council of Teachers of English and Educator Innovator.
