Title: Diversity Lesson


1
Diversity Lesson
  • Stacey C. Burgess
  • ED 301-02
  • Farewell to ManzanarEthnic diversity

2
Book Farewell to ManzanarByJeanne Wakatsuki
Huston James D. Huston
  • This lesson is geared towards 10th grade
    students.
  • This lesson teaches racial tolerance

3
Quick summary
  • For those who are not familiar with the novel, it
    is a true account of the Japanese interment camps
    during WWII.

4
Objectives
  • The objective of this lesson is to demonstrate
    racial tolerance.

5
  • Web links

6
Asian American Literature History, Classroom
Use, Bibliography WWW Links
  • This site caught my attention with this quote,
    Fiction books can be multi cultural,
    cross-cultural, or parallel-culture. Developing a
    relationship through a fictionalized character
    could be transferred to different culture. I
    believe that this is a very true statement.
  • Students are often afraid to ask questions about
    another culture and this is a perfect way to
    address some of their questions.

7
The Japanese American Internment
  • This gives more of a historical take on the
    internment. Also, it provides very interesting
    photographs that validates the authors story.

8
SCORE Farewell to Manzanar-Teacher Guide
  • A nice detailed teaching guide for the book.
    Also includes the theme of racism.

9
ML Literature Connections Teaching Guide
  • Very good resource for paper ideas and research
    proposals.

10
Japanese-American Internment in WWII Photographs
Exhibit, Univ. Utah
  • This might be useful to supplement the authors
    account of her particular camp with others who
    werent interred with her.

11
Lesson plans/Activities
  • This lesson would have to stretch on for as long
    as it takes to read the novel.
  • During the course of the novel certain activities
    could be done to aid in their understanding of
    what happened during the time era and why the
    camps were instated.
  • Diversity/racial tolerance would be the theme
    that I would be teaching for the entire course of
    the novel.

12
Activities
13
Materials
  • Materials would very.
  • Video
  • Book
  • Web site material

14
  • One activity that would be great for the visual
    learner would be to watch such videos as Beyond
    the Barbed Wire, a portion of Bitter Memories
    True Lake, or Challenge to Democracy.

15
  • I would ask students to freewrite after they have
    read the novel to tell me their feelings on how
    the Japanese were treated during this time in
    history.
  • Freewrites allow students to get out their
    feelings without worrying who is reading.
  • Class discussion would be encourages after they
    have written.

16
  • If possible, invite a speaker (If possible a
    survivor) to talk to the students about the
    experience and possible ways for that kind of
    treatment of a specific race to happen again in
    the United States.

17
Suggested Essay
  • Ask students what they would consider a fitting
    tribute to those who suffered and died as a
    result of their experiences in the internment
    camps. Challenge them to design a memorial, with
    sketches and notes outlining their ideas and
    their reasons. The memorial may be a physical
    structure a work of art, literature, or music
    or a program to be implemented.
  • ML Literature Connections.

18
Essay Ideas
  • Write a brief essay relating the treatment of
    Arab Americans after September 11 to how the
    Japanese were treated during WWII.
  • Were there any similarities? What was the big
    differences?

19
Poster
  • Create a poster. A poster that depicts what
    happened leading up to the interment and possibly
    pictures from the internment camps. (This is
    where one of the web links becomes helpful).
  • By doing this poster the students have to see
    what happened to the Japanese, Japanese that were
    citizens.

20
Fictional poem
  • After reading the book have students write a
    quick Where Im from poem from the main
    characters point of view and in small groups read
    poems aloud.

21
Fictional paragraph
  • Distribute pictures from website and have
    students write a fictional account of what
    happened based on the pictures
  • This teaches the students how to think about
    others feelings. It takes them away from their
    culture and forces them to think about someone
    else.
