I teach history and I'm a bit nerdy. So I like to talk about my profession. A relative small part of it is finding interesting pictures to illustrate my lesson.
I thought it would be nice to show some to you.
It is a modern fenomenon, historical judgements for us to watch, live. Television has brougtht monumental moments in our homes. For instance the scene in which a senate commission accuses and seales the fate of Joseph McCarthy.
But when I have younger kids, about 14 to 15 years I use an episode from the I love Lucy series, the episode where Lucy snoops on her neighbours who are rehearsing a bad TV play in which those neighbours are Russian spies. Lucille Ball was one of the first to survive the McCarthy commission although she had been a communist. Lucille Ball was to popular to bann from tv!
The link for the Lucy Ball episode will only work for the US.
