American Promise Dialogue Continues–Watch It Online Now

Screen Shot 2014-02-12 at 9.16.48 PMThe panel at last night’s program began a great dialogue that continued over dinner among CAIS colleagues and beyond. The Commission on Diversity and the Commission on Professional Development are grateful for the help of Joan Edwards, of Kingswood Oxford School, Jamella Lee of The Taft School, Steve Davis of Pomfret School, as well as Chris Phelps, Jhonny Perez ’14, and Rhonan Mokriski, from Salisbury School.

Both CAIS Commissions encourage CAIS colleagues to consider other ways to create spaces and time for dialogue. Follow on Twitter #AmericanPromise and #caisct to glean past annotations and enter new conversations. The film is so compelling and effective that it is now available to view online. Please share this with your colleagues: http://www.pbs.org/pov/americanpromise/full.php#.UvwhkXldZpt  The Birds of a Feather discussion topics we used for the evening program can be downloaded here: CAIS.Birds.Feather.Amer.Promise.2.11.14
