Evicted Teaching Guide

Grades 6-12

Eviction has become a crisis that affects every community across the country. The Museum worked with sociologist and author Matthew Desmond to create an exhibition based on his book, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, and share his research and the scale of the problem of eviction. This teacher guide, made in collaboration with the Interactivity Foundation, provides teachers with resources and a structure to analyze, discuss, and imagine solutions to the eviction crisis and similarly complex issues with their students.
