Digital Citizenship and Japanese American History Curriculum
Digital Citizenship and Japanese American History is a seven-lesson curriculum that addresses critical questions about the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, especially as they relate to the media. The experiences of Japanese Americans during World War II provide a relevant context for this study. Lessons are aligned to Common Core Standards and primary source material to support those lessons. This curriculum was funded by a grant from the Collins Foundation with support from the Japanese American Museum of Oregon. 

Minoru Yasui: From Roots to Results Curriculum

Lessons are aligned to Common Core Standards and primary source material to support those lessons. The curriculum was funded by the Multnomah Bar Foundation with support from the Japanese American Museum of Oregon and the Minoru Yasui Tribute Project.
