The Tule Lake Unit in partnership with National Japanese American Historical Society and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area will be offering a teacher workshop on Saturday, November 7, 2015.
Join us for an all day workshop and field trip to the Tule Lake Unit where they will learn how to access and use primary source materials to develop analysis and reasoning skills. Join us for an informative and dynamic exchange about the incarceration of Japanese Americans across the Pacific West. Utilizing a regional perspective, we will dispel the current narrative of a single experience for the Japanese Americans as we draw deeper conclusions and understanding of how and why this injustice took place. Case studies will compare pre and post war communities in Hawaii, Seattle and California.
