ENGLISH 310 teaches students to use their creative skills and social commitments to facilitate the powerful expressiveness of high school and incarcerated youth. It is rooted in respect for the youths' abilities and voices, in excitement about an educational process that promotes creativity, and in imaginative collaboration with the school and facility faculty, staff, and administration. Working two to three hours a week at Henry Ford and Cooley High Schools and Catherine Ferguson Academy in Detroit, and at the Adrian and Maxey Training Schools, Boysville, the Calumet Center, and Vista Maria, students assist youth in creating their own video tapes, plays, photographs, music, writings, art, etc. In two hour class meetings we discuss background reading, analyze and develop our work with the youth, and think out the implications of what we are doing. A further hour is devoted to meetings between each site team and the instructor. No exams.

Admission to the class is by permission of instructor. Check 3275 Angell Hall for specially posted hours for interviews for this course.
