"Contemporary Conflicts in light of the Cold War"
a new online teaching resource from the UCSB Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS), accessible via the website listed below.
The UCSB Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS), formerly known as COWHIG, is pleased to announce the launch of "Contemporary Conflicts in light of the Cold War," an online teaching guide for high school and college teachers. Based on a week-long workshop held in August 2004 at UCSB, the Web site features lesson plans and background briefing materials organized around five themes:
Israel/Palestine and the Cold War
International Terrorism and the Cold War
Nuclear Proliferation and the Cold War
Lesson plans exist for both high school and college-level survey courses, suitable for disciplines including history and political science. High school teachers developed high school plans, while graduate students developed college-level materials. Five specialists on these topics prepared the background briefing materials on the site.
This Web site is accessible via the aforementioned website. This project was sponsored by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP).
We hope these materials may be useful and we welcome your comments on the site and its contents at the e-mail address given below.
