Literacy and the Arts

We all know what 21st Century Skills are and how they will benefit our students in the Information Age, but what about an Every Century Skill like literacy? Like the arts, literacy is broad and therefore, it’s easy to connect with any subject matter.

In the arts, we can read a piece of art, write a new music composition, and use our speaking and listening skills to perform a monologue. And just like traditional literacy, there are language conventions for each art form that artists follow (and break).

Interweaving these artistic strategies into traditional literacy teaching methods gives students an engaging opportunity to connect their creativity with their skill-based knowledge. This deepens their learning and offers a more hands-on process for learning, practicing and mastering their literacy schema.
