About this Grantee

Ms. Rockett and Ms. Wolfe infuse arts into the language arts curriculum to increase literacy and writing skills. While studying Louisiana jazz and blues and African-American poetry, students develop poetry anthologies and illustrate children’s books on Louisiana music. Students present their published work at a poetry jam for families and local writers.
