That's the Spirit

This That's the Spirit lesson plan also includes:

Is, as Walt Whitman contends, America’s “almost maniacal appetite for wealth,” the heart of the American dream? Class members grapple with this question as they read David Brooks’ article “The Commercial Republic,” and quotes that comment on America’s commercialism. Discussion questions, activities, resource lists, and possible assignments are included with the richly detailed plan.
