GOALS OF THE INITIATIVE


The goals of the initiative remain as strong as they were when this DOE-CAT partnership began three years ago.


 Provide guided professional development – both theory and practice – on how interactive drama strategies support emergent literacy skills, such as recall, sequencing, projection, inference, oral language and vocabulary.


 Support public school and community-based early childhood center teachers in the design and implementation of literacy-based and English acquisition interactive storytelling lesson plans.


 Encourage teachers to utilize drama experiences to promote children’s English acquisition and early literacy, as well as their social development, critical thinking skills and emotional growth.


 Challenge schools to step up and commit their own funds to support a portion of the follow-up residency costs, establishing buy-in from on-site staff at individual schools and stretching the partnership’s investment to make more residencies possible.


 Provide high quality interactive learning experiences, aligned with NYS Common Core Standards, for students in the classroom.
