American Creed


Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together to ask: what ideals do we share in common? Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of citizen-activists striving to bring communities together across deepening divides. In this collection find classroom ready video clips to support teaching with American Creed.

Find lessons from Facing History and Ourselves to explore some of American Creed's central questions and themes here. Facing History and Ourselves is also hosting a student essay contest. Learn more about the essay contest prompt and how to submit essays here. The contest will be open for submissions March 1 through March 28.

With Writing Our Future: American Creed, the National Writing Project is inviting youth (13+) and young adults to add their voice to the conversations sparked by American Creed. Educators are encouraged to engage young people as they work towards responding to the film through writing, media, or art using any of the invitations to write included on the youth publishing website.
