Cultural Literacy: E Pluribus Unum

Finally on this Monday morning, here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Latin phrase e pluribus unum, the motto of the United States, appearing on the nation’s great seal. Unfortunately, this elegant phrase was never codified as the nation’s motto, so in 1956, in a counter-enlightenment move, “In God We Trust” was passed into law at the official motto of the United States.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
