Community Inquiry and Curriculum Development: A Relevant Education for Teachers about the Vietnam War
Dentith, Audrey M.; McCarry, David S.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v77 n2 p57-61 Nov-Dec 2003
In this article, the authors describe an innovative university-based project that connected graduate-level, preservice, and beginning teachers enrolled in a curriculum class for secondary and elementary teaching certification with a community-based war museum memorial and educational center. The course required these teachers to construct units on the Vietnam War. The units will be offered by the war museum as distance learning materials for teachers around the state of New Jersey. This process helps beginning teachers reconcile their understanding of curriculum with information gathered through inquiry into and engagement with community resources. (Contains 3 figures.)
