2019-20 Series: American Minds

During the 2019-20 school year we will revisit a general theme – the individual – we’ve studied in past series, like American Presidents. This time, however, we are excluding presidents and instead broadening our scope to include individuals who have had significant impact on our culture, society, and government through literature, reform leadership, science, religion, and war, as well as politics. OurĀ American Minds webinar series will help you integrate a broader selection of individuals into your history and government courses, and will also provide English teachers with an easy avenue to consider some literary icons from a historical perspective.
