Built on our successful pilot work in two Bay Area high schools in 2008 and 2009, our unique curriculum integrates the creative arts and a culminating presentation to excite students about learning, being engaged in actions and behaviors that further positive interactions with their peers, teachers and extended communities, and taking action to promote equity, justice and human dignity for all people. We invite teachers, leaders of non-profit organizations and community leaders to utilize the curriculum.
Separate pages of the curriculum lesson plans and resource guides are posted; we welcome your commentary and invite you to share additional ideas and resources.
