It’s been a long, hot summer. The weather is hot, but so are cultural topics- Cultural Values and the American Dream, Cancel Culture, and in our series on Simple Civics 101. You’ll find all of these articles in this newsletter. You’ll also get a peek into my mailbag. Opening up the mailbag lends itself to being a bit more personal.
I am most comfortable teaching civics, citizenship, and the Constitution. However, today’s Americans want to know how these subjects relate to daily life. . Sometimes, people just want to know they aren’t alone in their thinking about the culture. Hopefully, these articles confirm or challenge your thinking as you relate them to life where you live.
A warm welcome to our new and returning subscribers. Each week I will include the latest articles I have written. An occasional personal note from me will also arrive in the weekly email. The advantage of being a subscriber is the ability to see Common Sense Civics and Citizenship without the comments that usually appear with social media posts. Seeing things in a new way without comment can provide additional insights. It’s like watching C-SPAN. They just run the cameras with no comment. Viewing national events in this way gives you an opportunity to form your own opinions. Learning is not cluttered with distractions. And so it is with reading the weekly updates we send. I hope you enjoy them.
Again, welcome to those returning and our new subscribers. So happy to have new subscribers added to our numbers each week. We’re always grateful when you find the information here worthy of forwarding to a friend who might be interested.
Thank you for being an American who is interested in a Common Sense approach to Civics and Citizenship. ??
