With the intention to address education inequity, a workshop was created as an intervention program by drawing upon the ideas of culturally relevant and culturally responsive  teaching approaches. This innovative art and writing workshop was designed for Native American students in grades 7-12 and utilizes cultural strengths of Native American writers and artists. Each session was carefully designed to provide opportunities where students could identify and hone different styles of creative expression.

Authors of this month's Featured Article, Dr. Kelly Sassi and Dr. Denise Lajmodiere, give a detailed description of this 5-day workshop as it provides opportunities for teens to express their creativity while developing skills in writing, art, and technology.
