City Upon a Hill – Dreams

I imagine introducing John Winthrop’s famous City Upon a Hill speech just after a conversation on dreams with Harriet Tubman. By exploring the importance of dreams first, students would gain a foothold for understanding how important it is for leaders to set a vision for the future. I could revisit the importance of dreams in later units to reinforce their importance and explore their costs and benefits throughout the events of American history.
