The CFE teacher candidate would assist within the Education Department of the Nikkei National Museum. The candidate would be involved in teaching about Japanese Canadian history during field trips from elementary and secondary school students.
The field trips would provide hands-on teaching experience in a community setting, using museum exhibits, archival resources, and education collection materials. This will include testing and evaluation of new remote- and distance-friendly field trip formats being developed in the 2020-2021 school year.
The candidate would also develop, with the support of the Education Coordinator, lesson plans on Japanese culture and interactive history-themed activities for students' use during field trips and in classrooms.
