A Democratic Vision: Forming a More Perfect Union

A two-semester Clemente study course for low-income adults in Camden, two teacher seminars for New Jersey teachers, and a series of two-day teacher workshops in Newark throughout the fall and spring semesters.

A DEMOCRATIC VISION: FORMING A MORE PERFECT UNION is divided into 3 parts: 1) A Clemente course, AMERICAN FREEDOM: THE HISTORY OF AN IDEAL, serves low-income Camden residents; 2) Two teacher seminars: AMERICAN HEROES and LITERATURE AND DEMOCRACY, and 3) TEACHERS AS SCHOLARS, teachers workshops whose theme is inspired by Jefferson's words: FIRE BELLS IN THE NIGHT: CONFLICT AND RECONCILIATION IN AMERICAN DEMOCRACY.
