Literacy to Life
Literacy to Life is a school-based literacy program for third graders that uses the theatre to transform students’ understanding and approach to writing. Our professional teaching artists, the Paramount Story Wranglers, use creative writing, improvisation, and role-playing activities to improve students’ writing skills, all while developing their confidence, creativity, and storytelling abilities. For seven weeks, students write individual and group stories using the Literacy to Life curriculum. Then, the Paramount Story Wranglers collect student stories, adapting them into a full-length sketch production that they perform for the entire school.
