Developing of Collaborative Teams in High Schools Consisting of Reading Specialists and Art Specialists.
Corwin, Sylvia K.
This paper describes the Reading Improvement Through Art (RITA) project, an interdisciplinary approach to high school reading instruction. RITA was adapted from the elementary school's Learning to Read Through the Arts and Humanities program and was used in nine New York City high schools. During the RITA project, reading and art teachers collaborated to improve the reading ability and reading skills of 500 tenth graders. The students were motivated through visual art activities to use reading as a learning tool, and their reading ability increased dramatically as they applied reading skills to learning activities.
