Pearl Harbor: History, Memory, Memorial

Two one-week workshops for 80 school teachers to study the history and commemoration of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

This proposal outlines a plan for two one-week residence-based workshops that provide a combined total of 80 secondary school social studies/history teachers with training and experience in the use and interpretation of the USS Arizona Memorial and related material and archival resources. Through visits to the Memorial, a historic site (and a national shrine) devoted to honoring those who died in the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, lectures by leading scholars, and small group work sessions, participants will explore the historical significance and meanings of the attack and apply their new understanding in their everyday teaching. Project work will begin in October 2007 and end in December 2008.
