The California Legacy Voice Network has developed a statewide system to train social studies professionals on the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. It has scheduled three professional development workshops for teachers and administrators in Region 5 (Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey Counties) at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj) in San Jose's Japantown. The free workshops will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Participants sign up for one of the following sessions:  


    • Saturday, August 8, 2015
    • September workshop TBA

The workshops will be followed by lunch and a tour of the museum.

Special guest speakers include Karen Korematsu. The following four critical topics will be addressed:


    • California’s assembly centers
    • The Japanese American internment
    • Fred Korematsu’s story
    • The family stories of local Legacy Voices

Participants will receive the materials listed below to share with students and colleagues at their schools and school districts, thus preparing them to become legacy voices and to focus attention on the Japanese American internment experience:

    • The Japanese American Experience, Curriculum and Resource Guide from the Japanese American Citizens League
    • The Fred T. Korematsu teaching kit
    • Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston
    • Return to the Valley: The Japanese American Experience After WWII (DVD)
    • Educational resource CD from Densho (The Japanese American Legacy Project)

This program was funded by a grant from Japanese American Confinement Sites and is sponsored by the National Park Service, the Korematsu Institute for Civil Rights and Education, and JAMsj.

Cost: There is no cost for this event. RSVP by July 24.
RSVP: Contact info@jamsj.org (attention: Shirley Ota and Judy Tokubo) or call (408) 294-3138 to reserve a spot.
