The 8th grade Humanities Expedition, Justice,  is in full swing! Students are meeting with experts on a daily basis, and bring back diverse views on the Juvenile Justice system. Students obtained data related to the program and will work with it throughout the next weeks in order to create a provocative infographic on their specific topic. Infographics will be displayed at the 6/1 evening culminating event , during which students will guide families and community members to view the different pieces and question the authors.
