The goal of the History and Education effort is to provide the American public with historically accurate materials and interactive experiences that will help Americans better understand and appreciate the service of our Vietnam War veterans and the history of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
In the classroom
The History and Education office will develop high quality educational content for classroom use based on best practices of pedagogy.
Resources for teachers and students in the grades 7-12 will be available on the web site.
Future initiatives will include web-based oral history interviews with Vietnam veterans and a traveling educational museum.
Schools are encouraged to become a Commemorative Partner to honor the service, valor, and sacrifice of the Vietnam War veterans in their hometown. Partners will receive additional educational materials.
