I feel oddly inclined to say Seminal Documents Essential Question Project.
How do seminal US documents reflect the beliefs of the people and the foundations of American society?
Seminal documents reflect the beliefs of the people because they all reflect timeless qualities that anyone can relate to, and they achieve this by referring to the time period in which they were written.
For example, within his inauguration speech, President Kennedy asks other nations to collaborate with the United States. Collaboration is a timeless quality that anyone from any time period can relate to, but it also reflects the time period in which it was written because the people wanted to work with other countries and avoid war.
All seminal documents reflect the foundations of American society because all seminal documents shape the nation.
In his "I Have A Dream Speech," Dr. King promoted equal rights, which eventually led to equality for everyone in America, which altered the foundations of American society.
