The Cold War and Stuff

The Cold War and Stuff, a history class taught at Willamette Valley Community School during Spring Term 2005 by John M. Burt. Topics covered include the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, Reaganism, the New World Order and the New American Century, but above all on the fears and expectations of the people living through history.

We watched the rest of M*A*S*H, and some of the supplemental material on the DVD, which helped to place the film in historical context -- both the history of the Korean War and also the historical period, late Vietnam War, when the film was made.

Health class was not advanced substantially, so we'll have to catch up on that one.

We watched the first part of M*A*S*H, and made some effort to put the film in perspective historically.
