What Should Every American Know? (Workshop)
What should every American know? This question has long been debated, discussed, and deliberated. Amidst giant demographic and social shifts, it is more important than ever to define some common knowledge — cultural, pop cultural, historical, civic facts, memes, and references that every American should know. Answers need to come from all of us, not just a powerful few. This simple question, when truly participatory, compels us to explore together what it means to participate in civic life, and how we might realize the aspirations of our democracy. How would you answer? Share your ideas in this participatory session.
