Philadelphia Writing Project

Supporting Civically Engaged Argument Writing with Primary Sources

Curriculum Collections

Seeing our public monuments and memorials as texts or a collection of texts to be read and (re)written invites students to think critically about how/whose stories and histories are told and retold. Students can be invited to contribute to an ongoing conversation about what we value as communities.
