About Arts Literacy:
In the Hartford Performs Summer Arts Literacy program students become members of an arts-centered literacy learning community. A certified classroom teacher and teaching artist teach side by side during the 90 minute English Language Arts block of Early Start to bring text alive in the classroom. Using Sophocles’ Antigone as an anchor text, students will be up on their feet exploring the play’s key relatable themes including “loyalty and betrayal,” “sibling rivalry,” and “power and control.” The program’s curriculum is modeled on the Performance Cycle developed by Brown University’s ArtsLiteracy Project. At the end of the five weeks, students will share their understanding and interpretations in a public performance filled with student-created work inspired by the anchor text.
