Pilgrimage to Manzanar Grant

Join the Annual Pigrimage to Manzanar

Manzanar


The California Civil Liberties Public Education Program (CCLPEP) was created with the passage of the California Civil Liberties Public Education Act in 1998. The purpose of this act “is to sponsor public educational activities.…” Grants are awarded annually for these “public educational activities...to ensure that the events surrounding the exclusion, forced removal, and incarceration of civilians and permanent resident aliens of Japanese ancestry will be remembered and so that causes and circumstances of this and similar events may be illuminated and understood.”


Wayne Maeda, Senior Lecturer at CSUS received a CCLPEP grant that will provide funding for four (4) Elk Grove teachers to attend the annual Florin Japanese American Citizen’s League (JACL) Pilgrimage to Manzanar. Funds will cover substitute teachers, transportation, and accommodations. This is an intense three-day pilgrimage that includes guest speakers and activities focused on increasing content knowledge about the significance and history of Manzanar, as well as learning to apply the lessons of tolerance into our instruction and teaching of history. The pilgrimage is scheduled to leave Florin at 8 a.m. on Friday, April 29, 2011, and return Sunday evening, May 1, 2011.


The Contest:
With only four spots available, eligible (4th-12th grade) teachers will be asked to submit a reflective paper (no more than three pages) addressing of the following:

  1. Why are you interested in attending the pilgrimage to Manzanar?
  2. Do you plan on using the information provided?
  3. An emphasis of the pilgrimage is tolerance. How do you plan to apply this emphasis in your everyday teaching of History/Social Science Standards? Be specific.


The contest will open November 1, 2010 and close at 5 p.m. (PST) on November 30, 2010. Submit papers to Don Azevada in Curriculum/Professional Learning by the deadline. (Emailed papers are acceptable.) Papers will be reviewed by the Florin JACL and they will determine/notify the four teachers who will be granted the opportunity to attend the pilgrimage.


For specific questions, or more information about the Pilgrimage to Manzanar, please contact Don Azevada in Curriculum/Professional Learning at 686-7797 x.7644, or at dazevada@egusd.net

Time of Remembrance Program - EGUSD


Time of Remembrance Workshops are offered to all teachers who cover U.S. history, WWII, and the U.S. Constitution. Fifth grade teachers are urged to attend to support the Elk Grove Unified School District Board of Education approved study of the removal and internment of the Japanese Americans in California as part of the 5th grade study of the Constitution.

Beginning in 1984, the EGUSD Board of Education has annually approved a resolution recommending the study of the internment and the U.S. Constitution. The district provides each school with a full classroom set of books (A Journey to Topaz by Yoshiko Uchida) and materials. In addition, each 5th grade student is provided with a ticket to attend the Time of Remembrance program held at the California Museum of History, Women, and the Arts during January and February.

The Time of Remembrance workshop offers teachers information about the removal and internment of the Japanese American communities during WWII and the loss of Constitutional rights. The workshop will tie these topics to the California State History and Social Science framework and expected academic standards. Teachers will receive a study guide, lessons and resources to teach this unit of study. This year teachers will receive instruction on access to technology resources available through the district. This is a great opportunity for all teachers with an interest in these topics of history to learn about resources available .

Registration information for the October 12 or November 10 Time of Remembrance workshop is posted to the Curriculum and Professional Learning website.
