WORLD WAR II AND THE JAPANESE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

WORLD WAR II AND THE JAPANESE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

By Margit E. McGuire. Grounded in the belief that students learn best when they are active participants in their own learning, this unit has students role-play Japanese American families during World War II. Students immerse themselves in the era by creating a community in 1940. When they hear about Executive Order 9066, they have to prepare to leave their homes and get sent to an assembly center. From there, they proceed to a prison camp, where they create short skits about life in the camp. The unit comes to a conclusion when the war ends and students resettle; they are then given the option of testifying before the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians. Includes tips for using the unit with EL students. Grades 5–8. Glossary. 8½" x 11". Storypath. ©2020.
