During our library classes, we have read and discussed "The Bracelet" by Yoshiko Uchida which shares the story of a young girl preparing and arriving at a Japanese Internment Camp during WWII. We also have watched newsreel footage from the time period that shows the camps and the community activities. It is a powerful primary source.
Our field trip helped answer the question "What happened in Portland?" "In Oregon?" and the students were able to do their own field research. I was so glad to be part of the trip!
