“Only personal stories can truly convey to students what prison sentences really mean to loved ones left behind and just why we all should care. A Sentence Apart helps do just this by sharing the experiences of three individuals coming to terms with their loved ones’ prison terms. A Sentence Apart is an ideal instructional tool that has helped me humanize the social impacts of mass incarceration and generate enthusiastic and meaningful classroom discussion. It will be a mainstay in my lesson plan, and I highly recommend it all those who introduce their students to this important subject.”
