THE IDEA OF AMERICA
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
This unique, insightful volume views the development of America through the lens of four core debates—law versus ethics, freedom versus equality, diversity versus unity, and common wealth versus private wealth.
Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the nation (e.g., government, culture, economy, religion) and explores the ways in which American values and the tensions inherent in them have shaped the society we know today. Also available is a CD containing four related lesson plans with activities: American Values, The Enduring Debate, Our Founding Documents, and The Debate Today.
