WKU Students Receive Fuse Grants
Two FUSE (Faculty Undergraduate Student Engagement) grants have been awarded for Amy Wallace, Comparative Study of the Benefits of Integrating Music and Arts in Education and Brandy Young, Art and Literacy Infused: Enhancing Literacy through the Arts, to continue the Collage of Arts and Letters Projects during the 2014 – 2015 school year. With the support of FUSE grant, Amy and Brandy will return to Warren Central High School to conduct a classroom-based action research in spring 2014. Amy will work with Mr. Jonathan Vanderpool, ESL teacher, and Brandy, with Ms. Sandra Carter, art specialist.
During Summer 2012, art and elementary pre-service and in-service teachers traveled to Los Angeles, California to visit the classroom of Rafe Esquith, the 5th grade teacher and author of Teach Like Your Hair is On Fire. While in LA, the teachers also visited the Getty Museum, Getty Villa, The Autry National Center for Native American Art, and participated in the Native American story telling workshop by a well know Navajo story teller, Geri Keams.
