Using Ken Burns’ new documentary as our informational foundation, we will explore the history, politics, music, and popular culture of the era of the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War. By exploring a variety of texts and movies, and by meeting and talking to guest speakers, students will not only gain an understanding of the chronology of events and pertinent issues of that era, but will also be able to relate these issues (protests, patriotism, freedom of speech, and the morality of war) to current events.
