1950′s Recreation of the Classroom

 The hardest part about this project has been in researching what went on in the classroom. The 1950′s group was one of the groups that was able to really put the details of the classroom together well. One of their best sources was with their interviews and their photos.

Recreating a 1950s Classroom

As far as ideas for how to go about the recreation of the 1950s website I’m a little lost. I think it would definitely be cool to dress in period clothing and maybe have era appropriate props such as books and bags and such, but other wise I don’t know how we’d go about making the classroom […] Continue reading

Thoughts on the Recreation

Ever since this project was announced, I’ve been really looking forward to jumping into the recreation with both feet, preferably in decade-appropriate footwear. It might be the reenactor in me speaking, but I’d like to see the material culture of … Continue reading Continue reading

Recreation of the 1950s classroom

– What class/discipline should we re-create? I think recreating a history class would be fitting since we are in History of Women. We might be able to find a history book from MWC that was used in the 50s. Or we could do English and discuss a novel that would have been used in the curriculum […] Continue reading
