This course will focus on the experiences of US servicemembers and citizens during the end and aftermath of World War II, studied through the lens of four ABMC sites. Built on the themes of liberation, legacy, memorials, and honoring the missing, this course will look at the ways the United States has commemorated the memory of those whose lives helped secure liberation of others. Each of the four modules is designed to explore the ways we remember and honor those lost during this global conflict, while also developing content knowledge and pedagogical approaches to teaching about the end and aftermath of World War II.
Course highlights include:
- Virtual Tours of select American Battle Monuments Commission sites
- Lectures from top historians from The National WWII Museum
- Access to content from Museum galleries
- Access to high-quality curriculum and teaching tips from a Museum Master Teacher
- Discussion board facilitation and conversations with Museum educators
