Giving Voice to History

Students research a variety of sources and write dramatic monologues to highlight the injustices of this time period. In this World War II lesson, students discover what it meant to be Japanese in America during World War II. Students use primary and secondary sources, including the novel The Journal of Ben Uchida, as a basis for theatre scripts based upon actual people, places, and events during World War II.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
