In this first unit, students will build background knowledge about Japanese-American relations during World War II. They will consider the causes of both Japanese and American involvement in the war, beginning with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Students will read FDR’s and the Japanese government’s responses to the bombing and will consider conflicting perspectives of the same event.
