Teach Vietnam Teachers' Network Summer Conference

The 2007 Teach Vietnam Teachers' Network Conference is scheduled for July 18-22 at American University in Washington, D.C. Hosted by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the conference will bring over 30 teachers from around the nation to hear presentations from educators, scholars, authors, and Vietnam era experts. Attendees will not only learn and integrate new ideas and activities for teaching Vietnam, but they will also develop community outreach projects to further publicize the lessons and impact of the Vietnam War. In addition, teachers will work on a group project examining one of several aspects of how the Vietnam War has affected American culture.

Having attended the conference in the past (and presenting at this summer's conference), I can attest that Teachers' Network and the summer conference are outstanding experiences. The conference provides ideas, activities, resources, and inspiration for teaching the Vietnam War, and the connections made with teachers across the nation are extremely beneficial. I look forward to seeing everyone in DC in July!
