Film Study Guide: I Learn America

Written by Adam Strom for Facing History and Ourselves

I Learn America is a film about five resilient children of immigration who are struggling to learn and become comfortable in their new country. This film underscores the importance of how a nation welcomes its newcomers in determining the nature of that country in the 21st century and beyond. The I Learn America Viewers’ Guide, created by Facing History and Ourselves on behalf of the New York City Department of Education, is available as a free PDF download.
