BEYOND Insights

BEYOND Insights is a collaborative project between various College of Arts and Letters units and Lansing Public Schools. The program engages 6th-grade Lansing Public Schools students in a wide range of activities surrounding creativity, global culture, and the arts and humanities. 

Teacher Interacting with Student

The program runs for five weeks, offering one workshop per week. Developed as a two-session program, BEYOND Insights involves two different groups of children from Lansing Public Schools taking part in the experience.

Each weekly workshop has a centralized theme, evolving into a combination of insightful skills and lessons. Children have the opportunity to experiment with a wide range of activities including typography, creating Vine videos, exploring creative writing, identifying diversity within everyday life, and partaking in cultural activities from around the world.

Student Sharing His Work with Teacher

CeLTA's workshop introduces the students to various world languages and cultures and allows them to make connections between their own and new contexts.
