Educator Resources for American Creed (Course or Curricular Materials)
Title: Educator Resources for American Creed
Author: Facing History and Ourselves
Abstract: In the film American Creed, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from remarkably different life experiences, backgrounds and points of view to explore American ideals and identity. Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of a wide range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deep divides. Just as the film frames the stories of different kinds of activists who wrestle with America’s promise, Facing History hopes to inspire young people to engage deeply in a conversation about who we are, and who we want to be.
