Designed for teachers grades 3-6, this five unit literacy curriculum combines arts-integration techniques with Dr. John Bransford’s research on How People Learn. Each unit uses an art technique to explore literacy concepts through one or more texts igniting the creative process for students.


A sixteen-year professional educator, Ms. Davis provides creative educational resources, interactive websites, and guides for teachers to explore. Her workshops use stories, humor, and creative movements to meet specific objectives for participants.


Theater is an effective teaching tool in many situations and is surprisingly effective in making history more accessible and meaningful to students. This workshop enables teachers to develop active lesson plans by illustrating history through drama.


Leading artist and educator Roscoe Reddix Jr. uses everyday stories to show classroom teachers who think they are not “creative” and “artistic” simple activities and techniques to bring arts and creativity to their students. Participants will leave with ready-to-use knowledge, the foundation to create their own lessons, and the inspiration to continue to be an arts facilitator in the classroom.
