JiM Class

Jumping into Multiliteracies (JiM) Class is a program designed to engage elementary-school-aged students in literacy activities through meaningful, interactive and academically challenging learning experiences. Students have the opportunity to research, write, create, and critically engage with topics of their interest through digital technology, visual and performing arts. JiM Class coaches provide guidance and expertise to students as they make sense of the different media they use and the content they chose to explore. The program is designed to have a deep, meaningful and lasting impact on the participating students’ literacy development, providing another avenue of success in meeting the rigor of the Common Core State Standards.
