Her unique and highly successful curriculum development efforts in Language Arts have been recognized and rewarded through the numerous grants she has received. The strategies that comprise the INCITE TO WRITE program were first developed over 20 years ago as a result of Carol’s numerous artist residencies in Palm Beach and Broward County, FL schools over a 5-year period, addressing the need for creative and engaging curriculum that successfully taught students how to write and respond to different writing prompts. At the request of several school principals, Carol compiled her strategies into the INCITE TO WRITE program. Drama-based and emphasizing critical and creative thinking skills, the curriculum has been a success from the start, serving thousands of students in both public and private schools. The INCITE TO WRITE curriculum is used in the Storytellers & Writers program to address the academic Common Core Language Arts requirement of the program.
