We the Teachers

What So Proudly We Hail

The new book What So Proudly We Hail: The American Soul in Story, Speech, and Song takes what its editors’ term, “…a literary approach to teaching civic education.”  The book is an anthology of stories, speeches, and songs which tell the story of American and citizenship.  Included are the works and ideas of Americans as varied as Mark Twain, George Washington, Flannery O’Connor, Martin Luther King Jr., and Irving Berlin.

The book itself is an excellent teaching resource, and it is accompanied by a richly featured website which includes curriculum guides; video conversations; a supplemental library of stories, documents, speeches, and songs; resources for teaching about national holidays; and other useful learning tools.
