Learn More With Resources
for Teachers & Students
The Museum has developed middle and high school classroom guides, a virtual field trip and student webinars, and in-person and web-based professional development workshops to help you learn and teach about African American Experiences in World War II.
Each classroom guide includes an introductory essay and brief biographical profiles of prominent wartime African Americans along with three primary-source based lesson plans. These lesson plans align with Common Core and National Center for History in the Schools standards, and you can implement them either as a unit or individually.
