Summer Teachers Institute 2011: Cold War Cultures
Wed, June 8, 2011 • 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM • LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, UT Campus, Austin
The Cold War was one of the most influential events in American and world history. In addition to shaping generations who came of age between 1945 and 1990, its legacy continues to affect us today.
This summer, Hemispheres and the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum will team up to offer an unprecedented global look at the Cold War and its lasting economic, political and social impact not only on the two major players in the conflict— the U.S. and former Soviet Union—but on the rest of the world as well.
In addition to a lineup of engaging speakers, we’ll use primary documents from the library archives to enhance our program.
This year’s workshop will address the TEKS and STAAR standards for both World and American History courses—consider sending your vertical team!
Your registration fee includes: workshop materials, coffee and continental breakfast daily, lunch most days, and parking. Housing is available for a limited number of participants (see registration form for details).
This workshop is now full - we are no longer taking names for the wait list.
