    I used this clip with my New Arrival students. Coming to America to them has been a journey that I don't want them to forget. I want them to know that they are here for a purpose. This was perfect for them!

    I used this clip in American Literature class to show the power of words and the weight they can carry, and as a way to hear part of the Declaration read aloud.
