Picture 10 looks just like my fifth grade classroom. Thanks for sharing.

Slide Rule

Photo #8, 1957 (the photo of the high school student solving a calculus problem). Note the huge slide rule above the chalkboard!!!

I was just learning to use one when 4-function calculators became available for big money.

Beach Glass, I used a slide rule all through high school and college...bought a very expensive (hundreds of dollars!) scientific calculator when I got my Master's degree.

I actually taught kids to use a slide rule the first few years I taught, because calculators were so expensive. It was quite a workout running that giant slide rule!

After everyone had a calculator, I used to show off for my students who had never seen such a thing...we would race to do chemistry calculations--they on their calculators, me on my pocket slide rule. I always beat them, and was more likely to have the correct answer! They thought it was magic! (Yes, even when I explained that I was just adding and subtracting with two logarithmic number lines...)

I taught in a classroom that looked just like picture #4 (1953) until the 1919 original high school building was renovated in the early 2000's. I actually really loved that room. It had hardwood floors and huge windows that overlooked a pond. When they did the renovation, they did a great job of keeping a historic feel while making it usable for a contemporary classroom.

Picture 2 reminded me of the heavy wool coats we wore. I got my 1st nylon jacket in 3rd grade and felt light as a bird. My mom worried that I wouldn't be warm enough. Oh yest the headscarves.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
The picture for 1970, the girls doing track in short shorts was more modern than my school. We had these awful pink gym suits then and still had to wear dresses to school.

Those desks!

Photo #6
So regimented! All desks in straight rows facing front.
I do remember it well, but these look positively modern compared to those in our school, which were actually bolted to the floor.

This was a great memory. I laughed at the gym uniform since ours were blue bloomers

the audio visual stuff and the gigantic computers I remember from mid 1980s. Interesting to see integration become the norm from 1954 onwards. These were fun to see. Thanks for the history lesson!
