dc.description.abstract As I have become more involved in the schools throughout my time as a Social Studies Education major, I have come to realize more and more that World War II and the Vietnam War especially are neglected within schools. The majority of the facts students know from these wars is what they have seen in movies or in photographs. However, these photographs can be a misinterpretation of the war as a whole. In addition to all of this, primary sources, photographs included, are neglected by social studies educators at the middle school and high school levels. Teachers often do not have the time to dedicate to teaching students how to properly analyze different primary sources. It is with this in mind that I chose to create a website that looked at the photographs from World War II and the Vietnam War. In addition to giving information and analyzing the photographs, I have included lesson plans available for teachers to use if they wanted to teach a lesson using the website I created. I chose to create a website because students today are very interested in technology. Having a website may interest students more than simply in written text or printed photographs. In addition, this website is available to anyone, teachers included, who would like to use it. The website address is
