Writing Group Description:
Woke Academy Part 2 is the second part of an an enrichment, I started at my place of employment: Chicago Collegiate Charter School.
Throughout my experiences working with schools as well as Community Organizing, I have longed to center the passions of young people of color. Two ways I do that is by focusing on three contents: Reading, Writing and Speaking. In a world where our political climate is often uncertain, the demand for radical revolutions spearheaded by young people often take flight. In the 2nd part of this series, students will embark on a journey of civics, while embracing their own call in making the world a better place. We will center their words and their voices which will utilize the skills they've mastered throuout the quarters.
