STYLE ignites a passion for reading in students that will last a lifetime. Impacting students’ ways of thinking and working while giving them new tools and skills in everyday life.
What To Expect When STYLE Comes To Your School
Create A Song Inspired By A Book
Our STYLE Teaching Artists will come to your school and spend a week-long residency with your language arts classes. Students will discuss and analyze a book already in your school’s curriculum and then collaborate to write and record an original song inspired by the book.
Spark Creativity Through Communication And Collaboration
Record Your Song In A Professional Studio Environment
STYLE brings students’ learning to life by providing a professional recording engineer and studio setup brought to your school. Students experience being in a studio and come away with a professional recording that will last a lifetime. When students place the headphones over their ears, they experience the magic of the studio.
What Others Are Saying About STYLE
The program is a wonderful and unique approach to sharing works of fiction and nonfiction.
I couldn’t ask for a better way to entice students into the joys of literature.
The plans reflect the group’s commitment to the Common Core State Standards. This was the most impressive part of the program – the teaching artists truly modeled, scaffolded, and assessed extended book talk for the students.
The STYLE Program brought to life challenging concepts like theme, rhyme scheme, revision and collaboration. Students were engaged, pushed to step out of their comfort zone, proud of what they accomplished, and wished the experience lasted longer. As a teacher, I was able to authentically join my students in a creative process and see them through a lens that was priceless.
