Young Audiences Announces New "Arts For Learning" Unit

Published: February 2, 2012

In this new unit of Young Audiences' engaing supplemental literacy curriculum "Arts for Learning," students write personal narratives about experiences in their own lives. "Arts for Learning" recieved a i3 grant for innovation from the Department of Education in 2011.

To prepare for this unit, students will explore writing around three different topics. With each topic, they read real authors’ stories and engage in theater exercises as they apply the Writing Process. Then as authors, students pick one topic to write a whole story about and use acting to support their progress. As a culminating event, the class creates a theater presentation of the stories for an audience, who can see and hear the students’ stories on stage.
