Mission Statement

Cool Classics! is an after-school program committed to improving literacy and reading comprehension among underserved elementary school students, expanding their sense of arts, humanities and culture, creating readers, critical thinkers and citizens while serving schools that have lost arts and culture programs and are overwhelmed by demands of test-driven curricula. Our curricula, designed around morally complex books, allow us to develop students' analytic thinking while teaching about the arts, humanities, self-discipline and constructive dispute resolution.

Description

Cool Classics! goes into schools one to two days a week during after-school time to teach. While most after-school programs focus on one skill or subject, or approach, Cool Classics! employs an array of tools, techniques, arts and subjects to address the multiple learning styles of children and to get them excited about learning. Using one of several central texts as a base, children are introduced to related books, art, music, theater, artists, experts and ideas.
