Densho and Manzanar National Historic Site will host Teaching With Primary Sources Workshop: The World War II Incarceration of Japanese Americans, on Saturday, November 23, 2013, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, at Manzanar National Historic Site.

The workshop will help qualified educators and pre-service teachers learn how to access and use primary source materials to develop analysis and reasoning skills.

“This workshop is designed around thinking routines that are easy and powerful to use with a variety of materials in your classroom,” Densho and Manzanar NHS said, in their flyer publicizing the event.

“Content about the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans will introduce the thinking routines with photographs, oral histories, documents, and newspaper articles. Additional historical content and context will be provided with each learning activity.”

Workshop participants will receive a CD including lesson ideas aligned to Common Core standards, primary source materials, tips, and tools. A $100 stipend will be awarded to teachers who complete the workshop, create a simple lesson plan, and complete a post-workshop survey.

Lunch and a ranger guided tour of Manzanar National Historic Site are also included.

Manzanar National Historic Site is located at 5001 Highway 395, six miles south of Independence, California (see map below).
