WORLD WAR II AND THE JAPANESE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE
Select your Materials
Students role-play Japanese American families during World War II, immersing 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.
