This one-day workshop asks participants to consider the ways that injustice shapes individual and collective identity. Through the study of historical documents and literature, including Farewell to Manzanar, we will explore the history and legacies of the forced relocation and incarceration of Japanese Americans by the United States government during World War II.
In this workshop, you will:
Explore themes such as historical memory, justice, and civic participation in a democracy
Explore historical sources, literature, and multimedia to help students interrogate text and connect history to current debates about national identity, citizenship and the law
Receive a free copy of the new study guide for Farewell to Manzanar
After this workshop, you will:
Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia
Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
