Preparing for Veterans Day: Reading Othello at West Point
In advance of Veterans Day, join Civic Spirit’s first We the Educators session to learn with Professor Elizabeth Samet, professor of English at West Point. Together with educators from schools across the country we will study selections from Shakespeare’s Othello to illuminate the veteran’s experience at war and at home, and the various ways civilians and soldiers may misinterpret one another. Civic Spirit’s Director of Education, Nina Taub, will facilitate discussion on how to bring this text and other resources into the classroom to help students reflect on what it means to honor veterans.

DISCLAIMER: The opinions Samet expresses in this presentation do not reflect the official policy or position of the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or the U.S. Government.
