Creative Literacy and Storytelling Series
In this pilot year, YPT will conduct CLASS at SEED School of Washington, DC, concurrently teaching our SEED School After-School Playwriting Program and guiding the SEED faculty in using arts integration to support and enhance learning in their classrooms. CLASS partnerships are developed directly with our Program Director and seek to provide a deeper arts integrated experience for all program participants that directly supports the needs of the students, the school and the community. CLASS is YPT’s new model of holistic arts integration programming. A professional teaching artist spends a full day each week in CLASS partner schools, teaching students to use playwriting and storytelling to more deeply investigate and internalize their academic curriculum.
Stay tuned for more stories and updates on CLASS at SEED!
