Urban Planning Youth Outreach

Latin School: Uptown Unit


A partnership with Latin School of Chicago, I developed a unit on housing and displacement for 3rd graders. The three-week curriculum included me giving a presentation to the students, coordinating a site visit to Uptown and speaking to the students there, and developing a board game-like activity to roleplay housing challenges that Chicagoans of various income levels face.
