CRF Board Member Engages CAP Classroom

On November 12, CRF board member David DiMeglio visited Roosevelt High School (RHS) in Boyle Heights to support the classroom of CAP teacher Carlos Castillo. At this session, David interacted with CAP students as they examined Chicago’s Gang Congregation Ordinance of 1992. This topic is the focus of Lesson 5 of the CAP curriculum and was selected by Mr. Castillo to help his students understand the impact of public policy and the gang injunction currently in effect in their own RHS school-community. The experience was mutually affirming and reinforced the benefit of providing CRF classrooms with the opportunity to interact with legal professionals. It also provides board members with the opportunity to watch a dedicated CRF teacher in action. Please contact Keri Doggett at keri@crf-usa.org to schedule your own visit to a CRF classroom.

David DiMeglio, CRF Board member, on his classroom experience:

sssw“Thanks so much for including me in today's CAP class session at Roosevelt High School. The materials were top-rate, and the topic and its presentation made the subject relevant and interesting to the students. It was great seeing them so engaged in the topic and in the interactive learning process. There's no question in my mind that Mr. Castillo deserves a Jaime Escalante Award for most inspirational teacher of the year!”

Carlos Castillo, Roosevelt High School, on hosting a CRF Board member:

carlosc_rhs “I welcome CRF Board participation in the future. I think it’s important for any individual not in education to see what teachers do, day in and day out, and in the trenches. It's important work and I want others to see that. For individuals advising for civics-related curriculum, I think it’s essential that they visit the classroom, just like an automotive engineer would visit the test track. My classroom is that test track where you can see the civics lesson in action.”
