This material was prepared by the Center for Social Studies Education. Through its teacher/veteran partnership program, the center promotes more and better teaching of the Vietnam War, its lessons and legacies. Founded in 1984, CSSE seeks to do this by developing educational resources and training teachers and veterans to use them effectively.
The learning objectives of CSSE's materials are to teach students how to (1) think critically about U.S. national interests in relation to international affairs; (2) reason ethically about difficult choices involved in war; and (3) develop an understanding of people from other social backgrounds and cultures.
With permission from CSSE, we have adapted a few lessons for teachers to download for use in the classroom. We encourage teachers to contact the Center for Social Studies Education for information about their centerpiece curriculum unit, Lessons of the Vietnam War, and their other publications.
