Come learn how Detroit Future Schools (DFS) is humanizing schooling in Detroit. In this session educators, students, and media artists from the DFS network will share their lessons and experiences working in schools in Detroit. We will start off with a lively debate and then dive into practices from our media projects including the Out-of-School Documentary Project and our work with The Boggs School. Participants will leave the session with replicable practices and resources for thinking about community issues in their classrooms.
