MY STORY: LITERACY THROUGH THE ARTS
My Story is a unique program that combines arts disciplines with core subject academic learning by sending teaching artists to fourth and fifth grade classrooms. The fourth grade curriculum studies theater and acting tools while connecting students to California history and this develops strong speaking and listening skills. The fifth grade classes use digital photography to tell a story and create written narratives that connect their photos with emotions, perspective, and elements of design while sharpening language arts skills.

This program is presented in partnership with the Escondido Union School District and San Pasqual Union Elementary School District, and is generously funded by the California Arts Council.
