Secondary School Teachers Needed for Study of American Soldiers' World War II Experiences in the Pacific
The American Battle Monuments Commission is seeking middle or high school teachers to be involved in studying the experiences of America’s World War II soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coastguardsmen as they fought throughout the Pacific. The program will allow teachers to study this phase of World War II, engage in scholarly readings and discussions with experts and peers, and develop multimedia, multi-disciplinary lesson plans to help teachers and students around the world understand the service and sacrifice of America’s armed forces.
In July 2017, teachers will follow the path of the armed forces and travel to San Francisco, Honolulu, and Manila. Teachers will visit several American Battle Monument Commission and National Cemetery Administration cemeteries to honor individuals from their home states who sacrificed their lives in the war.
