Description

This six-week curriculum, featuring questions and readings to spark reflective dialogue, was disseminated throughout the state of New Hampshire and used to guide discussion series with leaders in higher education, business, policy, and government, as well as AmeriCorps members throughout the state. Questions include: "What do you consider your first responsibility as an American citizen?", "Why do we find it awkward to talk about class?", and "What role do you think the American Dream (real or imagined) plays in the lives of immigrants and refugees?" CCR assisted the New Hampshire Humanities Council with the creation of the curriculum and planning how civic reflection would inspire important conversations throughout the state.
