What does it mean to be an American? This year Winsor teachers and students are exploring this complex question in several Winsor courses-from Class I to Class VIII. Our first Parent Network of Diversity Forum of the year will provide us all with an opportunity as individual adults and parents to mirror our students' education and delve into this relevant and timely question.

We hope to explore these prompts and more:

  • Who gets to decide who is an American?
  • Who gets left out? Why?
  • How do we, ourselves, define being American?
  • What does the media tell us about who Americans are?
  • What does this question mean at Winsor? Why is it important?
  • What are privileges that come with being American and how can we use our privileges to help others?

We hope to walk away with practical tips for talking with one another and our daughters about some of these questions and more.
