This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book explores how the socially disputed period of the Cold War is remembered in today’s history classroom. Applying a diverse set of methodological strategies, the authors map the dividing lines in and between memory cultures across the globe, paying special attention to the impact the crisis-driven age of our present has on images of the past. Authors analysing educational media point to ambivalence, vagueness and contradictions in textbook narratives understood to be echoes of societal and academic controversies. Others focus on teachers and the history classroom, showing how unresolved political issues create tensions in history education. They render visible how teachers struggle to handle these challenges by pretending that what they do is ‘just history’. The contributions to this book unveil how teachers, backgrounding the political inherent in all memory practices, often nourish the illusion that the history in which they are engaged is all about addressing the past with a reflexive and disciplined approach.

During the 1950s, leading American scientists embarked on an unprecedented project to remake high school science education. Dissatisfaction with the 'soft' school curriculum of the time advocated by the professional education establishment, and concern over the growing technological sophistication of the Soviet Union, led government officials to encourage a handful of elite research scientists, fresh from their World War II successes, to revitalize the nations' science curricula. In Scientists in the Classroom , John L. Rudolph argues that the Cold War environment, long neglected in the history of education literature, is crucial to understanding both the reasons for the public acceptance of scientific authority in the field of education and the nature of the curriculum materials that were eventually produced. Drawing on a wealth of previously untapped resources from government and university archives, Rudolph focuses on the National Science Foundation-supported curriculum projects initiated in 1956. What the historical record reveals, according to Rudolph, is that these materials were designed not just to improve American science education, but to advance the professional interest of the American scientific community in the postwar period as well.

'Here is a vivacious account of how in the 1950s, under Eden and Lloyd at the Foreign Office, some 5,000 young men doing national service were quietly siphoned off from their units, secluded in Cornwall and Fifeshire, or, more boldly, next door to the Guards depot at Coulsdon in Surrey, and put through crash courses in Russian till they could speak it fluently ...' M. R. D. Foot, Spectator Lambasted by the Soviets as a 'spy school', the Joint Services School for Linguists (JSSL) was a major Cold War initiative, which pushed 5000 young National Servicemen through intensive training as Russian translators and interpreters, primarily to meet the needs of Britain's signals intelligence operations. Its pupils included a remarkable cross-section of talented young men who went on to a diversity of glittering careers: professors of Russian, Chinese, ancient philosophy, economics; the historian Sir Martin Gilbert; authors such as Alan Bennett, Dennis Potter and Michael Frayn; screenwriter Jack Rosenthal; stage director Sir Peter Hall; and churchmen ranging from a bishop to a displaced Carmelite friar. Geoffrey Elliot and Harold Shukman, both of whom emerged from JSSL as interpreters, have drawn on many personal recollections and interviews with fellow students, as well as once highly classified documents in the Public Record Office, in order to reveal this fascinating story for the first time. 'A highly entertaining read ... No one interested in late 20th century theatre or literature can afford to ignore this book.' Spectator 'Elliott and Shukman write with style and wit ... They record something more than a byway in the history of the cold war, a true contribution to British history.' Michael Bourdeaux, Times Higher Education Supplement 'An engaging, quirky account of this strange offshoot of the Cold War ... a kind of Virgin Soldiers for clever clogs.' Michael Leapman, Independent

The book contributes to improving teaching and learning in a few ways: first, it provides in-service teachers with step-by-step, ready-to-use strategies that facilitate their students’ comprehension and use of content area reading material; second, it aims to help pre-service teachers learn to implement hands-on lessons for their content area; third, apart from strategies offered to the content area teachers in the mainstream, the book also provides teachers of English language learners with strategies that address the literacy needs of their diverse students.“The authors in this collection offer teachers ways to deepen students’ reading and writing engagement within particular content areas. These thoughtful lessons are ready to be implemented immediately in the classroom.” – Denise N. Morgan, Ph.D., Kent State University “This book was created for teachers by teachers. It is filled with creative and engaging strategies, each having a step-by-step guide for implementation to promote student learning. Many of the strategies designed for specific content instruction can be modified for use across the curriculum. It is a refreshing compilation of instructional approaches and a valuable resource for both novice and veteran teachers.” – Maria G. Dove, Ed.D., Molloy College “The book is not only a useful teaching manual for teachers in the USA, but also a helpful instructional guide for teachers from other cultures. Particularly for the last section on ESL/EFL learners, it provides teachers in the field with inspirational activities.” – Haihua Wang, Ph.D., Dalian Maritime University

Atomics in the Classroom

Atomics in the Classroom

This book examines the broad curriculum--in social studies, science, mathematics, English, home economics and art--that emphasized atomics in American classrooms of the early postwar era.

After the August 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and Japan's unconditional surrender, America's educational community quickly focused on preparing the younger generation for the atomic age. With the support of the federal government, elementary and secondary schools developed a curriculum known as "atomics," emphasizing the bomb's destructive power, peaceful applications of the atom and, most important, the need to control nuclear research. By the 1950s, with the Soviet Union's acquiring of the bomb, "atomics" expanded to include civil defense topics and activities, such as "duck and cover" drills. This book examines the broad curriculum--in social studies, science, mathematics, English, home economics and art--that emphasized atomics in American classrooms of the early postwar era. Lesson plans, class projects and activities, resource materials and extracurricular experiences are included.
