Ganbare! Never Give Up! Nisei Soldiers of WWII
A full instructional unit about the sociopolitical effects of Pearl Harbor bombing and the history of Japanese American WWII soldiers
Following a year delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, JCCH and GFBNEC teamed up in February 2021 with the Nisei Veterans Memorial Center (NVMC) and Nisei Veterans Legacy (NVL) to formally roll out the expanded curriculum. Three Oahu high school teachers are testing it in their classrooms during the spring 2021 semester.
In order to introduce the curriculum to more teachers, a virtual Teacher Orientation will be held in late July 2021 with the anticipation that the curriculum can be presented in the classrooms during the 2021-2022 school year. Teachers who complete all of the requirements including providing feedback after the curriculum is taught to a minimum of two classes will receive a small stipend. The Hawai’i DOE is also seeking to place the expanded curriculum on the national educator website.
