Welcome to the Teacher’s Section of the Learning Center. Here teachers can access lesson plans, supplemental assignments, historical information and comprehensive research materials to teach the American story of the segregated Japanese American military units of World War II, the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and the civil liberty issues raised by the injustices of those times.
With the State of California’s adoption in 1998 of the History/Social Science Content Standard that requires students to learn about the “roles and sacrifices of individual American soldiers, as well as the unique contribution of the special fighting forces (e.g. the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the Tuskegee Airmen and the Navajo Code Talkers),” it is imperative that teachers be provided with the tools to incorporate this important aspect of history into curriculum.
By providing teachers with accessible curriculum resources to teach this American story, the Learning Center supports the promotion of ethnic tolerance, increases respect and support for the civil rights of all people, and demonstrates how prejudice and racial discrimination can undermine the foundations upon which this country was built.
Go For Broke encourages educators to take advantage of all the resources the Learning Center has to offer. Please check back as the Learning Center is updated with additional teaching tools and activities for educators and students.
