TEACHING ARTISTS

Many of WordPlay's programs are led by teaching artists—trained professionals in the visual, performing or literary arts who use the arts to enhance learning. Teaching artists might use acting to support reading comprehension, dance to teach poetry or puppet-making to teach storytelling, creating an engaging and creative learning experience for students.
