Juniors Discuss Meaning Of The American Dream

Juniors in Marie Palma’s English III class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark are beginning the year by discussing the concept of the well-known ideal of our nation, the American Dream. Thematically, English III focuses on the American Dream and the ways in which authors have infused this concept in their literature throughout American history. Students were placed in groups and each assigned a different article pertaining to the American Dream, its history, progression, and recently changing definition due to the state of our nation’s economy.

After each group read and collaboratively answered questions about their assigned articles, they prepared a mini report and summary which they presented to the class. Many students revealed that the activity and the open-class discussion following was historically informative as well as enlightening. Many students also shared with the class personal anecdotes of family members and friends who have achieved the American Dream.
