Street Law /
Books Not Bars DVD
Books Not Bars is a documentary film about public policy, prisons, the justice system, and youth advocacy around the declining investment in public education. It was developed through a partnership of education and human rights organizations.
Street Law created six lesson plans for use with the Books Not Bars documentary. Participatory teaching methods help students understand and explore difficult public policy, legal, economic, and social issues related to the U.S. criminal and juvenile justice systems. The lessons are linked to standards in social studies, civics and government, economics, and other subject areas.
This product was created through a partnership between WITNESS, Street Law, Inc., Books Not Bars/The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, and the Human Rights Institute at Columbia Law School.
