Quotes from AAM Teachers:

"What I truly love about this class and the American Memory site is that it leads to growth; it leads to reflection; it allows the possibility of change in improvement in how and what I teach. And that is, ultimately, everything I look for as a teacher."

Joe Scotese, Teacher - Loyola University AAM Participant


An Adventure of the American Mind is a Library of Congress funded program, administered through the ERC.
