Vietnam As A Usable Past: New Perspectives on Classroom Resources


This Year’s Topic:

This year’s topic presents new perspectives on and sources of historical resources that can strengthen and supplement classroom curriculum. Experts will talk about new ways to incorporate oral histories, photographs and home movies in to the classroom. These personal resources will invigorate lesson plans and engage students with the memories of those who lived through and made history during the Vietnam Era.  

This year's sessions include:

  • Keynote: Shaun Illingworth, Director of the Rutgers Oral History Archives
  • Tell It Like It Was: Bringing Oral Histories and Veterans' Experiences into the Classroom 
  • Seeing Is Believing: Incorporating Historic Photographs into Classroom Curriculum
  • Caught on Film, Our Movies, Our Memories: Using Home Videos as Classroom Resources

About the Forum:

The Forum is designed to help educators learn about new resources and ways that these resources can be used to develop classroom curriculum. Each year, the Forum highlights a different aspect of the Vietnam Era. Past topics have covered a wide range including popular culture, military and women’s history and comparisons with more recent military conflicts. The Forum takes global issues and ideas and presents them through a local, New Jersey perspective. The Forum is an opportunity to delve deeper into a specific topic with ample time for questions and answers.
