A Schools for a New Millennium project focusing on World War II history and New Mexico's contribution to the war effort.

Under the broad theme of "New Mexico and World War II," South Valley Academy (SVA) teachers will wrok with humanities scholars from the Bradbury Museum of Science, St. John's College, and the University of New Mexico (UNM) to explore a number of texts and humanities themes. Teachers-and subsequently their students-will address two main questions. 1. How did new Mexicans contribute to World War II? 2. What impact did World War II have on New Mexicans?
