Pre-Texts Workshop

November 22, 2017

Pre-Texts has enabled a global community of educators and changemakers to develop new a pedagogical tool which trains individuals as facilitators of student-centered learning experiences utilizing the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). In service to its holistic approach, the methodology integrates three core objectives --- innovation, engaged citizenship, and creativity to increase higher-order literacy, particularly amongst vulnerable populations. Developed by the Cultural Agents Initiative of Harvard -- an organization that’s mission is to improve the impact of arts-based learning workshops particularly for the well-being of underserved populations throughout the world.

Led by its founder Professor Doris Sommer, Ira Jewell Williams, Jr., Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University, this two-day workshop, will train participants to become facilitators of the Pre-Texts methodology. This weekend-long intensive workshop is a 15-hour certification training.
