About this Grantee

Mr. Reed and his partners implement a program called “Who Am I? Using Multimedia and Performing Arts for Self Discovery and Making Literacy Connections” to improve their students’ reading and critical-thinking skills. Teachers collaborate with parents, performance artists, videographers, and multimedia specialists to help students understand and document connections among media, literacy, and the performing arts. Students write poetry, produce video documentaries, and create dances that depict various aspects of their lives.
