Teacher and inspirational speaker Adam Falkner led two workshops at Pierce on Feb. 27.
His Voice-Pen-Power workshop utilized poetry, pair conversation and a social identity profile to provoke students into thought about their own identity, and the social and racial issues that are prevalent today.
“People engaging with a common experience enables them to feel more empowered to talking about themselves,” Falkner said.
The Dialogue Arts Project, founded and directed by Falkner, attempted to bring students and teachers into conversations about social and racial issues. DAP classes, which allow attendees to write and think about personal experiences, have good reviews.
