A Thriving Collaboration in its Third Year
In the month of November, IS 126Q Albert Shanker School for Visual & Performing Arts, began its third year in partnership with Community-Word Project.
This exciting residency features a writer who is partnered with a visual or theater artist. The two teaching artists collaborate with the classroom teacher to integrate arts through the curriculum. Students write poems in independently or in groups, and use a variety of mediums to express their work. They also use creative writing as a vehicle to generate dialogue, examine each other’s work, and foster discussions. The cohort’s students build deeper connections with one another through these experiences.
The program culminates with a student performance and a published anthology featuring students’ stories, poetry and artwork. Please stay tuned to hear about the best practices in this successful collaboration and our outcomes.
