educators interested in jewish and american history

The National Writing Project, through a partnership with Citizen Film and the Covenant Foundation, is offering microgrants to educators interested in showing the documentary film American Creed and facilitating a post-screening conversation about intersections of American and Jewish identity and ideals. 

Students around the country are discussing American Creed in classrooms, with curricular support from Facing History and Ourselves and the National Writing Project, and now we’re taking the conversation public in many communities, including Jewish communities around the country.

Contact to find out how to receive a microgrant to host a Screening of American Creed accompanied by a facilitated Community Conversation about Jewish-American ideals and identity — supported by the Covenant Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
