Line4Line has expanded its efforts to support diverse books in the schools by offering curriculum development services for schools and community organizations.

In 2021 and 2022, Line4Line partnered with the Big Buddy Program to curate books and develop activities for their summer Bookworm Reading Project. The curriculum, designed around weekly thematic units, presents a leveled books for grades K-5 and includes a creative making activity kit complete with all materials. As part of this program, Line4Line provided professional development training around reading and art making with children for Big Buddy Teaching Staff.

In September 2021 Line4Line kicked off Change the Narrative (CTN)  a creative literacy program piloted at Merrydale and Capitol Elementary during the 21-22 school year, and Audubon Elementary for the 2022-23 school year.   The CTN curriculum pairs art activities with books written by and about Black, Indigenous, People of Color to foster deeper cross-cultural awareness, support social emotional learning, and help students identify as readers and creative problem solvers.  Learn more about Change the Narrative and contact us to bring the curriculum to your school.

In partnership with the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge Line4Line provided arts integration lessons to 2nd and 5th grade students at Park Elementary during the 2021-22 school year.   The Line4Line team collaborated with ELA teachers to create custom arts lessons to support classroom learning.

The Line4Line team is able to develop custom literacy + arts integration lessons to support classroom educators or  community organizations who work with youth. We have the knowledge and skills to design lessons to energize your curriculum with books and making.
