This month’s featured module is the Cold War, Consumers, and Civil Rights: U.S. History from 1945-1963 module. The Module was developed by Dr. Penne Restad, reviewed, and published to the Resource Bank in the Summer of 2013. The Cold War, Consumers, and Civil Rights: U.S. History from 1945-1963 module was designed for “U.S. History, 1865 – The Present” as an undergraduate survey course.
The Module focuses on four learning goals. The Learning Goals are:
- Identify the sequence of critical events underlying:
- Cold War fears
- the rise of consumer culture
- the development of social criticism and protest
- Explain the significance or importance of these events and understand how they interact
- Demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships between these events and contemporary events to put them in historical context
- Develop arguments based on evidence to examine the transformation of American culture across the time period from a seemingly well-ordered cohesion to a more fractured, conflicted discourse
The Cold War, Consumers, and Civil Rights: U.S. History from 1945-1963 module includes a 19 question RAT and 1 Application Exercise.
