We the Teachers

TAH.org Weekend Colloquium: New Orleans

TAH.org hosted a diverse group of teachers in New Orleans over the weekend of 31 July to 2 August. The topic, Security, Self-Determination, and Empire: The Grand Alliance, 1941-1945, focused on the interactions between the United States, Great Britain, and Soviet Union during World War 2, with a special emphasis on the Yalta Conference of 1945, during which many of the agreements for the post-war world and divisions of land, people, and power were made. Teachers visited the National World War 2 Museum and along with seeing the new European Theater Galleries, saw the outstanding Tom Hanks-narrated Beyond All Boundaries documentary. In keeping with the special format of the program – a documents-based simulation of the Yalta Conference, with teachers playing the roles of specific national leaders and their assistants, with competing agendas and priorities – it was decided that an attempt at a recreation of the famous photo of the ‘Big 3’ at Yalta would be appropriate.
