Storyboarding Revolution

As their final project for the quarter, students were asked to write a historical narrative on one of four revolutions: French, American, Mexican, or Haitian. In addition to this writing assignment, they had to illustrate a pivotal event from their chosen revolution utilizing the format of a storyboard. Through this lesson, "Storyboarding Revolution", students illustrated cause and effect and chose a point of view from which to depict this event.

A Present Day Proclamation

During this project students at City-As-School wrote and presented their own proclamation by answering a question: "What are you fighting for?" inspired by Allison Smith's project, The Muster. This assignment, "What Are You Fighting For?!", created a platform for free expression. Students were encouraged to proclaim their own causes to spark discussion and awareness of issues important to students.

G:Class In Action

The success of G:Class is reliant on working with students, guided by the New Museum's mission to explore new art and new ideas. In and outside of the classroom, G:Class in action highlights student-produced work in response to art, ideas, and the G:Class program.
