We Are America
Facilitated by Mrs. Ward & Mrs. Farber
As a part of the national We Are America Project, ELA 3 students explored stories of identity and experience in an effort to convey what it means to be American. Students were then asked to tell their own stories in which they shared experiences they felt demonstrated their own places within the greater definition of American identity. The resulting work is being published both in a printed book and shared via the We Are America website via audio recordings done by the students.
