The Classroom is Yours: Practices for self-governance

This is the second part in a series of blog posts highlighting lessons emerging from Detroit Future Schools. Detroit Future Schools is an AMP Sponsored Project.

Detroit Future Schools' goal is to make our work to humanize schooling in Detroit "open-source" and accessible to other educators. Below, Nate Mullen, DFS Lead Artist, reflects on student-facilitated debates as a practice of self-governance.

The AMP Lapel Pin

We are celebrating the new Allied Media Projects logo with a small batch of high quality cloisonné lapel pins. They're not just for your blazer – they also look fresh on your beanie, backpack, or on a cork board.

We have a small batch of these pins and we are offering them exclusively as a gift of thanks to people who register for the Allied Media Conference before the end of April, and to anyone who signs up as an AMP sustainer.

DFS Instructors and Teaching Artists gather for a summer workshop.

Detroit Future Schools is an in-school digital media arts program committed to humanizing schooling in Detroit and beyond. We work in a small number of anchor schools where we develop and evaluate core instructional practices. We then share our best practices through the DFS Network, a local and national network of teachers, artists and community members.
