Class possibilities
The class will be 30-45 minutes
Not going to be entirely lecture-based.

  • Debate (home ec class? education? history?)
  •        – as 1950s college students – whether women should work outside the home?
  •                    good because could be framed within multiple disciplines
  • Upper vs. lower level
  •         – upper level would have more detail, potentially be better for this class
  • Potential topics
  •         –  Korean war
  •         – Red scare/learning Russian/McCarthy
  •         – home economics

Things that people are doing

  • John – doing more background research on the topics we have chosen or are considering
  • Nicole, Brooke, Kathleen – figuring it out and posting to Facebook by tonight?
