Forwords Tackles Critical Community Issues

This project is a partnership between ForWords Literacy Lab and the MUSE (Multi-Cultural Urban Secondary English) Graduate credential program at UC Berkeley. ForWords worked for a semester with a first year secondary English teacher at Oakland Tech providing her tenth grade students with materials and mentoring expertise from our staff for a project that challenged students to research and create an “Infographic” examining critical community issues such as poverty, police violence, and gun control.
