Announcing New Online Teacher Training Program
This month we launch an innovative online teacher training course. Educators now have access to a free training program and curriculum for teaching about the World War II-era incarceration of 120,000 innocent people of Japanese descent through historic photographs, documents, newspaper articles, political cartoons, films, and oral histories. This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture and by a grant from the Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program.
