    Professional Development: Teaching American History: JFK and the Space Race

    8:30 am - 2:15 pmHosted by Kokomo High School

    A new war emerged after WWII. It wasn’t fought on the ground or air but in space. The Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union lasted from 1945-1991 and as the two nations battled an ideological war, they would also fight one for superiority of the Final Frontier. There were incredible feats of courage, ingenuity, and technology as well as deception and espionage. Join us at the table for an intriguing conversation.

    This program will be conducted as a discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
