How many students feel as if they are "missing"---merely names on a list? With over fifteen years in education, I've encountered many "missing voices." In this session, participants will witness a "missing voice" monologue from Educator/Dramatist Carlo Dawson and be provided with arts-integrated strategies to close the achievement gap.

Session Abstract:
-Did you know public high schools in South Carolina graduate only 61.7 percent of their students? This is 12 percent less than the national average and 26 percent less than the state's federally-defined graduation performance goal, according to the 2011-12 State Department of Education report.
-Did you know South Carolina ranks 45 out of 50 for the number of Black Males to graduate high school according to the 2009 The Urgency of Now Report?

-The Missing Voice, provides a monologue from Teaching Artist, Author, Storyteller, and Dramatist Carlo L'Chelle Dawson as well as teaching strategies. She will speak from the "voice" of the voiceless---many of our students.

Objective: The session will provide attendees with creative arts-integrated strategies and lessons for all subjects in order to help close the achievement gap.

Objective: The workshop lessons and strategies will equip teacher leaders with tools to foster student critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills along with academic subject mastery all while increasing student interest.(That's right! Students will be engaged!)

With over fifteen years of classroom experience, Carlo has utilized these same strategies with her students with great success. To learn more about Carlo L. Dawson, visit carlolchelledawson.com.
