YURI developed multi-day curriculum writing institutes for the education nonprofit organization, The Fred T. Korematsu Institute. Teacher participants from around the country engaged in professional learning to develop these lessons on the World War II-era Japanese American incarceration. Institutes integrated field visits, scholarly lectures, and sessions on pedagogical strategies. Teachers created lesson plans for film segments of documentary films and published them on the digital platform, PBS LearningMedia. The UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project, Facing History and Ourselves, and The Presidio of San Francisco served as partners of the institutes.
