Appropriate for educators who are currently teaching literacy in the K-5 classroom, this course develops understanding, knowledge and skill for designing performing arts-based lessons. Playwriting activities are examined for their unique potential in leveraging the listening and the speaking skills that are innate in children for developing their reading and writing competency. Teachers create performing arts-integrated lesson plans to understand why movement, music and drama can be powerful tools for the literary teacher.
