    • Jillian, This was a very interesting post and I think you were able to cover a lot of different topics. I liked your argument that the two most important parts of the American Creed are backgrounds and education and I agree that those two things are very important. Specifically, I liked when you said that “Students should learn the importance of the values of the backgrounds of each person and education within school. It is important as educators to teach these values by being the role model and example to the students.” Here is an article you may find interesting: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/10/upshot/teacher-diversity-effect-students-learning.html

    • Great emphasis on the need to develop voice–both as teachers and as students. Thank you. You are exactly who we need to be going into teaching!

    • Jillian, I enjoyed the whole article. I love the extent you took to explain American creed and democratic values. I loved how you illustrated democracy in America today and how it appeals to everyone. I think it is important to remember each individual in the democracy, and you illustrated that well. Thank you for taking the time to write this.

    • Hi Jillian,
      I thought the article was great. Your idea of how democracy is present in all facets of our lives really made me think about its effects in the country and how it effects me. Education and democracy are both very important. Here is an article that relates to the topic. (https://www.americanexperiment.org/article/what-is-education-for-democracy/)

      Thank you,
      Matthew

    • Amy,
      I’m going to be frank with you. Your article was stellar and really opened my eyes to the idea that democracy is apart of our lives every single day even we don’t know it. It truly affects everyone around us. Me, you, and everyone we love. I found this article (https://www.deseret.com/opinion/2019/11/21/20974897/do-we-have-too-much-democracy-election-2020) to be interesting and related to the part where you write about democracy in today’s word.

      Thanks! Ben
