NWP Radio—Writing Our Future with American Creed

December 14, 2017

Through its many stories—set in a range of big cities, small towns, and rural areas around the country—the documentary American Creed wrestles with key issues in America today, including opportunity for all, the meaning of citizenship, and the challenge of meaningful civic participation and dialogue. American Creed will air on PBS in February at which time your students can join the conversation and add their stories via a national youth publishing site designed and supported by the National Writing Project. Join NWP Radio to hear about this film, learn more about the youth publishing opportunity, and listen to the ways other educators have already been weaving this film and related discussions and writing opportunities into their lesson plans.


  • When: January 2018
  • Where: Audio will be available on this page when the show airs.
