Teacher Training and Resources for Educators
Education is a key part of our mission. Our goal is to inform and engage others in this invaluable piece of our American history, and use it as a teaching tool for generations to come. By understanding the Nisei soldiers’ stories of loyalty, courage and patriotism, we help to preserve our democracy and shape a more just and equal society.
We are pleased to offer, in partnership with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, an elementary and middle school lessons and activities for download.
