CLASS SET by Jessalyn Aaland
“Class Set” are an edition of ten 11" x 17" posters designed to inspire and affirm students by encouraging divergent thinking, questioning, creativity, curiosity, resilience, resistance, solidarity, and social justice through quotes by radical authors, artists, and activists, each designed by a different artist. The Teacher’s Companion, included with the posters, contains information about each of the artists and authors whose quotes they used, along with handouts designed to support high school students in exploring the prints and ultimately, designing their own Class Set to be displayed throughout the school or where students feel others need a little inspiration.
