This summer, Archmere history teacher Tara Rodack partnered with the Delaware Historical Society to create a virtual field trip centered around World War II and the historical society’s Minker Collection. The Minker collection is a series of 650 letters that detail the experience of B-17 pilot Ralph L. Minker Jr. and his Wilmington based family as they cope with the stresses of World War II. Tara worked with the historical society’s Director of Education and Archmere alumna, Rebecca Fay '90, to create a lesson around the theme of sacrifice as evidenced through the primary source letters. From rationing and air raids to the pain and anxiety due to their son’s and brother’s deployment, the sacrifices of this Delaware family especially resonate with students who experienced their own sacrifices this year with the onset of a worldwide pandemic. The virtual field trip will be offered to all private and public schools in Delaware this coming fall.
