Last week, November 6, for our after-school GRIT program at the SIUE/East St. Louis Charter School, I coordinated an activity where we constructed "East St. Louis vision boards." The students were instructed to take blank boards, select among an assortment of dozens of images and illustrations; and paste those, along with their own illustrations and words onto the small poster boards. The young folks produced a variety of artistic pieces and perspectives.
