Write a letter to America. Write this in the first person. Be creative. Use your voice.
Begin with Dear America,
What is your relationship with America right now? Has it changed over time or remained steady?
What feelings/ thoughts/ messages do you wish to tell America in this moment.
We are about to spend the next weeks interrogating the history and literature representing America. Use this letter to reflect on your general ideas about America.
What is your general narrative or impression about America and its founding? What stories about America do you believe? What questions do you have for America?
Use these questions as guides, but no need to follow them literally or linearly.
Reflections are 1 – 1.5 double spaced pages. Word doc or pdf format uploaded to this submission link.
