Spreading Understanding Of American Cultural Values
Reminding Americans that our basic American values, which unite us all, are far greater than anything that divides us.
Leading this mission:
Maryanne Datesman taught English as a Second Language (ESL), primarily at the university level, and she co-authored the textbook American Ways: An Introduction to American Culture.
Sharing America’s six basic cultural values with future generations.
Remember these are cultural values, not moral values.
1. Individual Freedom
3. Equality of Opportunity
5. The American Dream
6. Hard Work
America’s six basic cultural values are rooted in the beliefs and visions of our Founding Fathers and reinforced by historical experience. These cultural values are what distinguishes our country from all others. They are what make us “Americans.”
