A Thriving Collaboration in its Third Year
Community-Word Project is an educational arts organization that partners with classrooms to help children how to better read, interpret, and respond to their everyday experiences through in-class arts residencies. CWP has been a long term partner of Zone 126 and community schools. Spring 2018 marks CWP’s third year at CS 111Q.
Last year, CWP worked with CS 111Q’s 1st and 2nd grade classrooms to make their own anthologies, which they received after the 12-14 week program concluded. Anthologies are booklets comprised of stories and poems written by the scholars of their work done within the program. This year, Community-Word Project will continue developing writing with 1st and 2nd graders to further develop their story telling skills and love of theater expressions from their previous residency experience.
Teaching Artist Deanna Green will return for her second year to add to the continuity of the program’s impact. It is exciting to have effective artists and teachers come back to work with our scholars, to hear “I remember you as the echo throughout across the classroom.
Our collaboration with CWP is deeply rewarding, as they are in their third year at our school, building deeper rapport with our students. Not only does CWP work on literacy and theater, but also within that process our scholars are able to talk through their challenges and emotions. We are excited to see this Spring’s residency further encourage social-emotional development.
