Prisons and Jails: Who Pays the Price? 

With Center for Urban Pedagogy and Bushwick Leaders High School
Project based curricula + zine


In-class project-based curricula for public high school students, designed to help connect teachers’ core curricula to civics education using art and design as tools to research the city. During the Fall of 2018, for 11 weeks, I met with students in their classroom, twice a week, to investigate how prisons and jails “work”. We researched, learned how to survey, interviewed experts on the issue, made lots of art and a zine (download here).
