The Fair Housing Five

A new book for children

Hey friends! It’s been a busy spring for Samaria and her friends. In February we were back at Alice Harte Charter School reading The Fair Housing Five & the Haunted House with first graders. Then in March we worked with Alice Harte eighth graders for a week on a game that demonstrates the impact of housing discrimination and an urban planning project. (Great news- we’ve invented a version of the Housing Choice Game that takes less time, so if you wanted to bring the game into your classroom but didn’t have an open block long enough, give me a call!) March also brought us back to McDonogh 32 Literacy Charter through our partnership with Young Audiences. Then in April we went back to Audubon Charter School, home to our very first workshop two years ago! We did the Housing Choice Game with 4th, 5th and 6th grade students, talked about the Fair Housing movement, and designed fair housing posters. I am endlessly impressed and inspired by the young people we work with, who are thoughtful, creative, and deeply outraged by injustice. Scroll down for photos.
