Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Japanese Relocation during World War II" by National Archives.

The informational text, "Japanese Relocation during World War II," discusses the relocation and internment of Japanese Americans during WWII.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Prejudice & Discrimination and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How are we changed by war?" and "How does prejudice emerge?"

Ways to support your child:

  • Ask your child about this informational text at home:
    • What was "Japanese Relocation during World War II" about?
    • What did you learn about Prejudice & Discrimination?
    • What did you learn about War & Peace?
  • Watch Japanese-Americans Visit A WW2 Incarceration Camp at home with your child.
