Educator's Guide to Resistance at Tule Lake
Updated: Apr 11
We wrote an 80-page guide for K-12 educators to accompany the 2017 documentary film, Resistance at Tule Lake. The film tells the long-suppressed story of incarcerated Japanese Americans during WWII. Designed for secondary and college-aged students, this curriculum guide is a series of interactive, source-rich lessons and assessments that can be taught alongside a screening of the film. The guide provides background information and resources such as timelines, maps, before viewing activities, primary source analysis, final assessments, and projects.
