FRIENDS AND ALLIES: STANDING UP FOR JAPANESE AMERICANS IN WWII
Join us for our online Teacher Training on Saturday, February 26th at 10:00AM-2:00PM PST.
During our training, learn about Japanese American history through literature. Explore our forthcoming graphic novel “Those Who Helped Us.” A historical fiction novel, “Those Who Helped” focuses on the efforts and actions of other Americans who stood by their fellow Americans despite the opinion of the day.
Introduce primary source materials into your classroom, use graphic novels for literacy, and gain comfort in teaching aspects of our collective histories you may not already teach. Find a connection to the stories of standing up for justice and bring the theme of upstanding into your classroom discussions.
Our program will take place virtually and on Zoom. Participants can expect an email with the Zoom link and outline for the program one week before the event.
*While the training is free, for participants to receive clock hours they will need to pay separately on the day of the training.
