Out Laws & Justice

(Out)Laws & Justice was developed to capture the attention and vibrant energy of youth using educational drama and compelling primary source documents to deliver a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum of American history and English language arts. By studying the conquest of the West, students confront and compare the contested grounds of the frontier and the contested urban grounds where they live today. They then dramatize what they learn in original plays they write and perform on stage.
