PORTLAND, Maine — As educators scrambled to adapt their curriculums to remote learning for the school year, one Maine learning program set a standard for how to write and think about art in the pandemic era — through the eyes of kids.

A group of students at the Telling Room, a Portland-based youth literacy program, adapted its Week in Review writing program this year at a time when academic models have constantly evolved and adapted to keep children safe and distanced.

Students streamed concerts on Instagram, explored online museum exhibits and consulted with local journalists and others to learn how to observe and write persuasively.
