About Creating Identity
Creating Identity is a pilot program for 7th-10th grade CPS students, encouraging them to explore their individuality and character. Fulcrum Point’s eclectic music serves as a catalyst to inspire a body of work containing creative writing, art, and music.
A new social learning platform from MashPlant compliments this program. Thanks to our brainstorm session at 1871 tech hub, a notable partnership emerged with tech innovator MashPlant. This platform facilitates learning in a safe 24/7 social digital community. Private online music libraries containing music, data and video, make collaborations possible between students, composers, and teaching artists, allowing them to discover, create and share content. Check out MashPlant on the Fulcrum Point website.
This pilot launched with 17 sessions taking place at Jane Addams Elementary School and continuing through 2017. The pilot will culminate with a final performance at which students will present their creative writing, art and music for their peers, teachers and parents.
Thanks to our success at Jane Addams, we conducted a second round of the Creating Identity pilot program at George Washington Elementary School with sessions taking place through June 2017.
