The Dream Flag Project is K-12 poetry, art, and community-building project that connects students to their dreams and their dreams to the world. It is inspired by the poetry of Langston Hughes and the tradition of Himalayan prayer flags. In this session, participants will learn about the project through video, stills, and many examples of student work. Curriculum resources on the project web site will be highlighted and, to the extent possible, participants will begin to create a Dream Flag on-line. Participants will also lean how the project can help them for direct connections with schools across the globe and across the street that help facilitate collaboration, dialog, and shared goals.
