Curriculum Embedded Project
Guided by the question, "What is truth?" 10th grade students at the Institute for Media and Writing candidly explored perspectives on issues relevant to their lives. The resulting project was this handbook conceived of and written by students for students; their hope was that this book may be used in high school advisory classrooms to initiate discussions around issues that are relevant to students today.
