Deborah Alcorn

Ms. Alcorn will study language and literacy learning in the lives of urban youth by taking the Hip Hop, Youth Culture, and Critical Pedagogy course at Middlebury College.  Through her work, Ms. Alcorn will develop a better understanding of the powerful oral and written communication many youth engage in through their participation in hip hop and youth culture.  Upon completing this course, Ms. Alcorn will share her findings with colleagues and apply them to students in her English classes.
