Understanding the American Dream is foundation to understanding American History. However, is this Dream fact or fiction? Or perhaps a combination of both?
This is a two part assignment for students. On the very first class of the year students complete, "The American Dream in Real Life: Part I." Students choose one of the differentiated options to express their understanding of the American Dream (no critique yet!).
At the end of the semester students complete Part II of the assignment. This portion is a critique of the Dream based on what students have studied throughout the course. Students again have a number of differentiated options to choose from.to express their learning.
The assignment has proven to be very effective in not only helping students understand the Dream, but also critique its accuracy.
