ARTS-BASED, ACADEMIC & HANDS-ON:
LeAp’s professional development initiatives are underway with classroom teachers citywide in our ALLL Literacy program.
Not only are teachers learning to implement arts-based, hands-on strategies in their classrooms (through modeling and team teaching), but they are attending comprehensive workshops at New York University to learn new ways to teach reading comprehension, build vocabulary, and master grammatical structure.
From “Adverb Charades” and "Alphabet Hopscotch” to “Website Design” and “Doughnut Hole Objectives”, teachers are discovering innovative techniques in music, dance, theater, visual art, and cooking to literacy.
Besides the ALLL Literacy program, LeAp works with teachers citywide, offering hundreds of professional development workshops that address the math, science, social studies and ELA curricula using arts-based strategies.
