The Korematsu Institute collaborated with PBS LearningMedia to publish a collection of multimedia lesson plans on the Japanese American incarceration. These standards-aligned lesson plans explore topics such as Japanese American resistance to the incarceration and the U.S. government’s misleading use of language and euphemisms. Each lesson plan integrates a documentary film clip and includes background information, focus questions, objectives, historical thinking skills, detailed activities, and supplementary materials.

View all the lessons and stream the video clips via PBS LearningMedia.

The lesson plans and videos are also part of our Curriculum Toolkit. Order yours here.

This project was made possible thanks to generous funding from the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program, administered by the California State Library.
