Pieces of History: Intrepid in the Vietnam War
Grades 9–12
Book now for programs starting in January 2016!

Students explore the exhibition On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War. Working in small groups, they examine and analyze Vietnam War–era objects and primary source documents from the Museum’s collection and use these elements to “curate” their own mini-exhibition narratives.

Dates: Monday, August 3–Saturday, August 8, 2015 (36 hours)
Audience: Social studies and history teachers, grades 7–12
Credit: P credit, awarded through New York City Department of Education

This course will provide middle and high school teachers with resources from the Intrepid Museum and expose them to the diversity of scholarship and debate on the Vietnam War. The course will deepen their understanding of the conflict and increase confidence in their ability to explore the subject thoroughly, critically and engagingly.

Teachers will work with expert scholars and Museum staff. The course will integrate primary sources such as letters, photographs, oral histories and other ephemera, along with the National Historic Landmark Intrepid, so that teachers gain skills, content knowledge and confidence using primary sources in planning, teaching and assessing standards-based instruction on the Vietnam War. This course is open only to New York City Department of Education teachers. There is a $75 fee, in addition to the DOE course fee, to take this 36-hour, three-credit course.
