Product Description
This is not your typical lesson. I created it for a National Endowment for the Humanities workshop geared towards post-war economic development in Southern California stemming from the aerospace industry. However, the themes might be just as useful in any classroom if looking for something different on the Cold War, midcentury modern design, or perhaps even a history of engineering. There are three parts that can be used: 1) Comparing and Contrasting Designs (from 30's to the 50's) 2) Aerospace and Disneyland's Tomorrowland, 3) Aerospace and Surfing. The overall focus is on design and materials that influenced recreation. The format is a series of readings for students with questions to respond to after each section. I wanted to in something fun with innovations of the 1950s and 60s. Check out my other products, if you like :)
