Student Voices: Connecting with Washington's Letter in a Classroom
At Trinity High School in Newton, MA, a history class works with a Facing History and Ourselves teacher to dig into George Washington's 1790 Letter to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport, Rhode Island, examining what it meant for the Newport congregation looking for equality in the early nation and what it might mean for audiences today.
