Developing Reading Education with Arts Methods: Uncovering Capability and Supporting Student Success
Integrating the arts into the curriculum of Title I schools (indeed all schools) provides significant opportunities for students to engage in reading and succeed in learning. Students and teachers are remarkably capable given the opportunity. DREAM opens the possibility to the students and teachers to engage deeply in the reading curriculum. DREAM is highly accessible and easily replicable. This session will be of interest to elementary schools, and those interested in reading, professional development, English Language Learners, creativity, and of course….the arts! Funding for the research of DREAM was provided by the Department of Education. The project is based in southern California.
