Summer P Credit: Cold War in Context: Using Primary Sources at the Intrepid Museum
Credits: 3 P-Credits
Length: 6 Days (36 hours)
Dates: Monday, August 5, - Saturday, August 10, 2019

Cold War in Context: Using Primary Sources at the Intrepid Museum will immerse teachers in historical research as well as the history, artifacts and oral histories in the Museum’s collection that embody the Cold War era, using two main historic artifacts, the former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid and Cold War submarine Growler, as authentic points of entry into the study of this topic. In addition, the Museum displays a Project Oxcart A-12 spy plane, equipped with cameras that took images from 80,000 feet, and, from the latter years of investment in a major Cold War-driven initiative – the race for space – the shuttle orbiter Enterprise. Just as important as these large artifacts and historic spaces are the smaller objects, primary source documents, ephemera and oral histories collected by the Museum from this era, connecting the larger history to specific, human stories. The course will allow teachers to deepen their understanding of the Cold War era and increase confidence in their ability to explore the subject thoroughly, critically and engagingly with their students. Guest lecturer Alex Wellerstein, PhD, of the Stevens Institute of Technology and co-curator of the Museum’s exhibition on the submarine Growler will provide three sessions to ground teachers in the scholarly content of the era. Find the full course description, syllabus and assignments on the ASPDP website.

Please register on the ASPDP website before registering with the Museum. To enroll in the course, you must register with both organizations and submit a $120 fee to the Museum.

Each participant will receive a copy of the course text, Understanding and Teaching the Cold War by Matthew Masur. Light snacks will be served.
