STORIES & MORE, CURRICULUM DEVELOPED FOR CROWN COMMUNITY ACADEMY
CENTER FOR COMMUNITY ARTS PARTNERSHIPS (CCAP)
In Spring 2016, I was part of a discussion for Crown Community Academy, a CPS school in Chicago's North Lawndale neighborhood, to address educational needs and learning gaps within the school. One of the gaps addressed in the discussion was the need for arts & literacy enrichment education for students in grades K-2. I developed a program, "Stories & More", with the underlying concept that students would read stories with Columbia College student mentors, and create art projects or play games that coincided with themes in the stories to reinforce knowledge and learning.
Documentation of this project is coming soon.
