    Teaching Japanese American Incarceration with Stephanie Hinnershitz

    Teaching Japanese American Incarceration with Stephanie Hinnershitz

    This week's episode features historian and author Stephanie Hinnershitz.  As we frequently discuss on this podcast, the language we use in our history classrooms is so very important.  Stephanie discusses Japanese American Incarceration-- what it is and why it was incarceration and not just internment.   She also talks about her upcoming book, Japanese American Incarceration: The Camps and Coerced Labor during World War II.  Further, in light of the horrific attacks on our Asian-American brothers and sisters, learning about the accomplishments and racism that has plagued the AAPI community for over a hundred years will help our students understand how we got to where we are in the United States and also build empathy and understanding.

A master teacher

I knew CherylAnne when I worked with her in New Jersey. To say she was a masterful teacher would be an understatement. She never resorted to using materials that made teaching easier. She was always searching for new stories- stories that have been forgotten or simply untold. If we are to become compassionate citizens, our students must have thoughtful educators like her. I have been lucky to know her; now, through her podcast, you will have the fortunate chance to learn from her too.

Super Important Discussions

CherylAnne has launched a great thing that educators around the world should tune into! She is a powerful and empowering educator in New Jersey that daily guides her students to thinking wider and deeper about alternative history/Herstory. Congrats on the launch of your podcast! Sounds great!

Everyone Needs to Hear This!

CherylAnne Amendola is one of the most thoughtful and insightful history educators out there! I have followed her Facebook Live videos and other social media for some time. I own her book “On the Backs of the Enslaved” and made sure to get it added to the school library where I worked. CherylAnne is not only an absolute treasure trove of historical facts and insight, but her delivery is exciting. Most importantly perhaps, is that she makes the lessons of history relevant for today’s issues. This should be required listening!
