Quite a bit has happened in the two years since A Reason to Read: Linking Literacy and the Arts was published. Our lab school Habla in Mexico has been hosting an annual teacher institute that is now a gathering place of progressively-minded teachers and artists from around the world. We’ve had the pleasure in the last year of working with teachers, artists, and educational leaders in Hartford, CT, Denver, CO, Loveland, CO, Vero Beach, FL, West Palm Beach, FL, S. Portland, ME, Everett, MA, Louisville, KY, and of course Providence, RI. In all of our travels we’ve learned much from the various amazing educators we’ve met. We will be adding many new activities to the Handbook on this site and, here in this space, will be sharing some of the lessons we are learning as individuals and as an organization. We’ll invite various guests to write about their work and we hope you will find something of interest and join the conversation.
