In this FREE unit, students examine U.S.-Japan relations before World War II, experiences of incarcerated Japanese Americans, and ways the Japanese American community and others in the U.S. have remembered incarceration.
Japanese American Incarceration in WWII
How did Japanese Americans experience and resist incarceration in the United States during WWII? How can we teach about Japanese American incarceration accurately and sensitively, while also placing it in a larger discussion of U.S. immigration policies?
We’ll explore the lessons in the Choices mini unit (provided), Japanese American Incarceration in World War II, and ways to connect the history of this period to the work of activists today who are addressing immigrant rights and U.S. immigration policy.
This is a free one-hour webinar.
Participants will receive the Choices Program mini unit, Japanese American Incarceration in World War II.
This webinar is appropriate for middle and high school history, social studies, and humanities teachers, including AP and IB educators.
