The ArtsLiteracy Handbook
"Take it, Use it, Make it Your Own!"


The handbook is a collection of ideas and activities that we’ve developed ourselves or learned from other teachers and artists. We’ve selected for you here the activities that have worked best for us over the years in different educational contexts.

Each activity is part of a larger process represented by the Performance Cycle. The book A Reason to Read: Linking Literacy and the Arts offers not only the purpose behind the activities, but many additional activities that are not listed in the handbook. We hope you find the handbook useful and we invite you to join the conversation about literacy and the arts here or on Facebook.

We apologize for activities from the old handbook that haven't been posted here yet. We are in the process of editing all ArtsLiteracy activities and adding improved versions here on this site. Visit often for new ideas!
