This presentation will illustrate the process of creating an interdisciplinary course, “Critical Thinking”, and the Citizen Soldier project. Students were asked to employ critical thinking skills in the creation of a pop-up museum and digital archive, in response to the question: "How Do We Remember War?" We will discuss lessons learned from a collaboration of Georgia College faculty, staff and community partners in this project. In addition we will lead participants in a hands-on experience utilizing critically thinking in regard to issues of public and collective memory, commemoration, and the power of using archival material in support of engaged student learning.
