Join Project NIA on March 22, 2014 for the Release of Our New Curriculum Guide by Dr. Michelle VanNatta, “Teaching about the Prison Industrial Complex and Criminal Legal System: Exercises, Simulations, Resources, and Discussion Ideas.” Michelle will lead an interactive based on some of the activities featured in the guide.

This curriculum guide offers ideas for exercises that can be adapted, shared, and transformed to meet the needs of different groups. These activities are offered as potential tools in the hopes they may be useful in sparking discussion and in the development of more curricula.

Teaching about the Prison Industrial Complex and Criminal Legal System” is in no way meant to provide a comprehensive look at issues in the prison industrial complex or criminal legal system. This is not a systematically developed, integrated group of exercises intended to provide a thorough view and analysis of all the critical issues about the prison industrial complex that communities, students, and activists need to learn about. Rather, it’s a set of tools intended to be adapted and integrated into curricula, popular education, or training efforts by teachers, organizers, and community builders.

Participants will learn about the content of the guide and will get some hands-on practice using some of the activities featured.  A digital version of the guide will be available to interested individuals and information will be provided about how to access this. In addition, hard copies of the curriculum guide will be available for a suggested donation of $25.

  1. Is there any way to get the curriculum if not able to attend? I live in Ohio and I’d love to review it for myself, my colleagues and fellow activists. Michel Coconis, PhD, MSW 614-447-0012 michel4justice at yahoo.com
