Welcome to the Princeton Association of New England - We Are America Panel at Harvard Graduate School of Education

 

We Are America Panel at Harvard Graduate School of Education

Attend Panel on November 13 or See Exhibit Until December 15


We Are America is going to Harvard! 

Join us Wednesday November 13th from 5:30-7:30pm for a conversation and interactive workshop led by the high school founders of the We Are America Project, Re-Imagining Migration Co-founder Adam Strom, and the We Are America founder and teacher Jessica Lander HGSE'15

***The We Are America Project is working with teachers and young people across the country to define what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation.

During the 2018-2019 school year, teacher Jessica Lander (HGSE'15) and students in her Seminar on American Diversity strove to answer the question: What does it mean to be American? In trying to tie together large historical movements and individual histories they wrote and edited two books of personal stories "We Are America" and "We Are America Too." Their hope was to start a different type of conversation about identity.

This summer they launched the national We Are America Project. The goal is to help spark a new national conversation around what it means to be American, led by the next generation.

Over the course of the 2019-2020 school year, Lander and her former students are working to support 36 teachers in 23 states across our country, who in turn are working with more than 1300 students to help define what being American means to them.
