CTL’s Artful Reading program integrates the arts into literacy instruction to meet Kentucky & National Literacy standards. Artful Reading promotes a thoughtful, innovative approach to reading, writing, speaking, and listening by utilizing high-interest and varied texts, unique art materials, and expertly crafted lesson plans. 

Registered participants will still receive an Artful Reading Module of their choice mailed to their home. As part of the workshop, participants will;

  • Learn about the power of arts-integration on learning, 
  • Identify a summative writing task that applies to their module, grade, goals,
  • Using the tenants of UDL, plan for delivery in their classroom with scaffolds and supports that prepare students to be successful, and 
  • Feedback from both participants and the facilitator on their plan. 

Participants will use a variety of synchronous (Zoom) and asynchronous (Google sites, forms, sheets, docs)  tools to collaborate. Follow-up/implementation support is available when school begins.
