Spitfire Club Online
Announcing our spring term of The Spitfire Club!
We're making lemonade out of these pandemic lemons: The Spitfire Club is hosted on Zoom and open to everyone!
This spring, 71 Spitfires are exploring American history through the eyes of women. Our six-week unit is titled It Ain't Over, Yet: The suffrage movement and America's ongoing quest for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. During this unit, our Spitfires are exploring the complicated relationship between women's suffrage, abolition, and manifest destiny. It's heavy stuff, but we're approaching this carefully, fostering empathy and honest inquiry as we go. Our ultimate goal is that our Spitfires will leave our unit understanding that the American dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness cannot exist if anyone is oppressed -- our fates are inextricably linked -- and that the work is not yet over.
Our term began the Week of May 3 and will conclude the week of June 7. We regret that we're fully-booked and signups are now closed.
Spitfire is free of cost and open to all. Our programming is funded by generous public support--if you would like to help cover the cost associated with this program, please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
