Writing Across the Curriculum-Workshops & Residencies
Workshops and residencies are available for students and teachers, and can range from 1 hour to 5 days, depending on the needs of the school.
STEAM Writing: From atoms to galaxies, scientists use metaphors to explain things that can’t be seen. Discover how writing poetry can deepen scientific understanding.
Coming to America: Arrive in America in 1901 with only your dreams and a steamer trunk, and learn how how to live in a new country without losing your own culture. As we immigrate, we’ll integrate, bringing history to life through poetry and drama.
Reading & Writing Art: Visual Literacy & Poetry: Can you read a painting? Your students will become detectives when they explore art—reading, analyzing and creating it—to discover its secrets, and translate those secrets into poetry.
The Poetry of Ecosystems: Create poetry and visual art to understand ecosystems from the inside out and the outside in, discovering how animal, plants and climates work together.
The Geography of Your Life: Your students will fall in love with social studies by designing three-dimensional maps of their own lives, the lives of historical figures, or characters from literature.
Condensing the Water Cycle: If you were a body of water, what would you notice? How does the water cycle really work? Explore the mysteries of water through poetry, dance, science, social studies and visual art.
