Inspiring Equity: A “Spoken Word” Model to Address Learning Loss

Join hip-hop icon and author Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, the  legendary founder of the group RUN DMC. He will be discussing his new  best-selling children’s book entitled Darryl’s Dream (Random House) and his  new hit series What’s the Word? at Noggin – Nick Jr.’s learning platform  developed by education experts for little kids, with games, videos, and books  starring their favorite characters. Darryl’s work on inspiring kids to do  well in school and to master early literacy skills will be presented through  his own freestyle rap and a conversation with Alejandro Gibes de Gac.  Alejandro is an early literacy champion and the founder of Springboard  Collaborative, a nonprofit organization that focuses on closing the literacy  gap by closing the gap between home and school.
