Teach Vietnam Teachers' Network Regional Conference

A regional conference for educators to learn more about teaching the lessons of Vietnam in their classrooms will be held on Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The conference will feature presentations that address various aspects of bringing the lessons of Vietnam into the classroom. One session will show educators how to use “primary sources” such as photographs and letters home to teach students about the Vietnam War era. Other sessions will look at how art can be used to help students comprehend the realities of the time and how technology can be incorporated into both lessons and student research. Another presentation will look at how the media’s portrayal of the Vietnam War and its era has influenced popular thought.
