"We’re living through a historic time.” The students at Michele Clark High School have heard this phrase over and over in an era of a global pandemic, political and social changes, and remote learning. Throughout Inside Out There, these studentsdocument their experiences during quarantine through blackout poems, journal entries, homages to contemporary artists, and more. This collection sets out to answer what it is like to be a teen right now.
