Vietnam War: Not Forgotten

Laura Wynn, Program Specialist for Secondary Social Studies, presented Vietnam War Instruction happening in our schools to the Veterans Council of St. Johns County at their March 29 meeting.  Over 80 local veterans as well as other county residents attended.  The presentation offered insight regarding state and local curricular requirements, standardized testing, and instructional resources and strategies used by St. Johns teachers when addressing this important topic.  Mrs. Wynn also shared that the district hosted Vietnam veteran guest speakers in secondary classrooms several times throughout the past school year.  Over 1,400 students benefited from this experience and we look forward to expanding these programs into more classrooms in the future.
