What Does It Mean To Be An American?: American Creed on PBS and Digital Classroom Resources

Learn how to bring the issues raised in the PBS documentary film, American Creed, into your classroom through digital resources that engage students in conversations about the film.

In the film, 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.

Using digital resources drawn from the film, we hope to inspire young people to engage deeply in a conversation about who we are, and who we want to be.

This webinar is in partnership with Facing History and Ourselves, WGBH Education and PBS LearningMedia™. American Creed is available to stream on PBS.org. Preview Facing History and Ourselves lesson plans and PBS LearningMedia classroom resources related to the film.

The recording link will be sent to all who register shortly after the live stream. Registration is limited so please sign up today.
