There were two goals for the Japanese during pearl harbor. The first goal was "To illustrate the impact that the bombing of Pearl Harbor had on those living in Green Bay, Wisconsin." And the second goal for the Japanese was "For students to understand the strategy of the Japanese during the boming of Pearl Harbor." Those were the two goals that the Japanese wanted to acomplish. They had planed to do that once they bombed Pearl Harbor.
The other things below are the things that the japanese also wanted to do. Some things include the time, the procedure, the assessment, etc.
Approximately 1.5 - 2 hours
1. The class will watch a video about the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Before watching the video, the teacher should provide the class with a discussion question which the video will address.
2. After the video has been completed, the students will be given a copy of the articles from the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
3. After the students have finished reading, there will be a class discussion about the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Furthermore, the discussion will be enhanced by discussing the impact that Pearl Harbor had in other parts of the United States.
4. After the class discussion is over, students will be asked to write a journal entry about what they learned about Pearl Harbor.
1. Class Discussion (Criteria for Success = Demonstration of knowledge gained during this lesson, class participation is mandatory.)
2. Journal Entry - see writing rubric. (Criteria for Success = No more than 5 grammatical errors.)
Curricular Strands and Major Concepts:
1. Language Arts - Oral Communication, reading for meaning, journalism, writing
2. Social Studies - Pearl Harbor bombing, connecting the bombing with an entirely different location
1. Arrange for a guest speaker who was in Oahu or in Pearl Harbor during the time of the bombing.
2. Students could write a reaction paper based on the entire Pearl Harbor incident. They
could explain how the event may have changed their lives if they were alive at the time
(such as the fear and the anti-Japanese sentiment that spread throughout the U.S.)
