  • The Living Symbol
    How does an individual become the embodiment of a nation? Can the process be reversed to permit a glimpse into the human life underlying the symbol? The goals of this lesson plan are to examine the life and legend of George Washington as reflected in his writings and in popular commemorations of his accomplishments; to investigate his contribution to the legend that has grown up around him; to explore some of the meanings that have been attached to Washington through the course of American history; to present a statement of findings.
