As a professional development program of CPET, Literacy Unbound brings teachers together as creative collaborators to re-imagine reading, writing, listening, and speaking through multiple modalities.
Our approach integrates reading, writing and discussion with artistic experimentation through drama, music, dance, film, and visual art. With the help of guest teaching artists, teachers step into reading and writing through improvisational sound and movement, experimenting with the layering of mode and medium, the interplay between physical and digital space and the remixing of text on text. Through our work, we hope to challenge the traditional divide between the "core academic subjects" and the arts, the curricular and the extra curricular. While many arts integration organizations work only with students, we believe that by positioning this work as teacher education, we can create enduring practices with sustainable impact.
