Only in America

America is the home of the skyscraper, blues music, and the poetry of Walt Whitman; something in the American character has led to great discoveries, innovations, and art. Our underlying optimism and idealism have led the world in the direction of democracy, freedom, and human rights. Meanwhile, our country has great divides—political, social, racial, economic—that often seem unbridgeable. As teachers, we need to walk a line between showing our students the beautiful and the ugly, the positive and the negative, of the world into which they will soon graduate, all while balancing the need to give them a unbiased and fair vision yet staying true to many of our own beliefs and values.

How do we teach the whole, unvarnished truth about America?

The deadline for proposals has past, but you can still register for the conference. We hope to see you there!
