Educator Workshop on World War II
Wednesday, February 13, 2008 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
KQED Education Network presents its ongoing program, Bay Area Mosaic, a professional development workshop series designed to help teachers integrate ethnic studies content into the standardized curriculum. Mosaic presents these educational themes by utilizing PBS and KQED films to enhance learning and teaching, with an emphasis in social studies and language arts.
We invite educators to explore World War II
Three new documentaries about Bay Area veterans accompany Ken Burn9s series THE WAR
The War: Bay Area Stories - Produced by KQED, this film tells the compelling wartime stories of veterans and citizens on the homefront in the San Francisco Bay Area. San Francisco has always been a destination for diversity and this film reveals the impact of World War II on the wide mosaic of communities that comprise our region.
The War: Nisei Soldiers - Produced by KTEH, this film tells the story of Japanese American veterans in the SOuth Bay and Central Coast who fought valiantly for their country despite the internment of their families by the U.S. Government.
The War: Soldados - Produced by KTEH, this film tells the story of Latino veterans of the South Bay and Central Coast. Many of these men, mostly farm workers, felt compelled to prove their patriotism. Changed by their experiences overseas, they cam home to a new fight around social justice and community issues.
Focus for 6-12th grade social studies teachers (teachers of other content areas and K-5 are encouraged to attend)
FREE, dinner provided, and educator resources such as films and educator guides are available.
Pre-registration is required (Please note: due to the high volume of registered no-shows at our events this past year we will be sending a confirmation email about a week in advance of the event and will require a positive response to hold your reservation. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.)
