This is a graded assignment. Remember our discussion from Week 1 about what the American Dream is? In this course, we’ve looked the origins of the American Dream and then how some groups have struggled to be included. In this final week of class, we are looking at the current status and the future of the American Dream, as well as what it means to be a global citizen.
In a post of at least 100 words, address the items below:
- Explain how has your understanding of the American Dream changed as a result of this course.
- Reflect on John Lennon’s “Imagine,” which for many signifies hope. Do you believe there is hope for the American Dream? Choose at least one image from the song lyrics or video that signifies your new understanding of the American Dream.
