This YouTube playlist shares previews of video kiosks featured in the museum's exhibit of the same name. The videos share the oral histories of Japanese Americans that were sent to internment camps during WWII. Most of the videos are under five minutes long and discuss the hardships encountered by being forced to live in internment camps in California. These videos accompany a lesson plan shared by the California Museum that is available here. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (139), japanese (42), oral history (12), world war 2 (131)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plan that accompanies the videos on this playlist as part of your American History and WWII lessons. Consider sharing a video at the start of a lesson to engage students in learning about discriminatory policies' personal toll during the war. Use a discussion tool such as Answer Garden, reviewed here to gather student responses and create word clouds to encourage classroom discussion. Add videos from the playlist to other activities within a teacher utility such as TES Teach Blendspace, reviewed here. Use Blendspace to add additional reading activities, quizzes, and more content to deliver lessons for distance learning or as a tool for self-paced learning. Easily differentiate learning by copying your original Blendspace learning then modifying activities based upon student needs. Extend learning by having students share their understanding of internment camps by presentations using Sway, reviewed here that includes student writing responses, images, videos, and more. Another option is to offer students the choice of building an interactive timeline using History in Motion, reviewed here that offers users the option to include maps, add events, include source materials, and more.

The California Museum also provides a playlist of videos to accompany these activities, learn more about them here. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable.

For example, create a timeline for Thomas Jefferson and another for Alexander Hamilton and ask students to compare and contrast important events in their lives and consider how these impacted their view on America's founding principles. Have students share their reflections and information on a simple webpage created using Carrd, reviewed here. Expand learning further by asking students to use a presentation tool such as Sway, reviewed here, to demonstrate understanding. Ask students to include a link to their Wikipedia timeline along with images, Venn diagram comparisons, and other information found during their research.

Bakpax uses AI (artificial intelligence) to read handwriting and grade assignments using your uploaded tasks or activities found on Bakpax. Create an account, enroll your students in your virtual classroom by connecting to Google Classroom, or manually add information. Use the Discover area to find and assign activities to students or upload images or PDF files to your account. Bakpax also offers a "magic" option, email your assignment to the site, and it will upload for you. Students can complete work online or submit finished assignments by taking a picture with a mobile device and uploading them to Bakpax. Be sure to view the videos and frequently ask questions to learn more about using and sharing Bakpax with your students.

In the Classroom

Although Bakpax isn't able to automatically grade longer writing assignments, it is useful for lessons that require a shorter response or fill-in-the-blank responses. Share activities with students to use as a lesson-starter or to provide additional practice with new skills. Create a practice bank of worksheets and share with parents requesting additional work for students. Enhance learning by asking students to record a FlipGrid, reviewed here, that shares their thinking and problem-solution process. Flipgrid includes the option of including a whiteboard within responses, ask students to use the whiteboard as a teaching tool to explain their responses to an assignment.

Undraw is an open-source resource for image designs to use with any application. Choose from a huge library of images available in PNG and SVG formats. Use the color generator to customize and change the image color to fit your needs. Although only a portion of each image changes color, the effect is significant and very helpful for various needs. Take advantage of the search feature to browse through the many available images that match your criteria. After selecting an image and color, click to open the picture and choose from options to download to your computer as an SVG or PNG file.
