Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre

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 collaborating with volunteer docents and cultural experts from the Japanese Canadian community.

The candidate would also assist in updating the Teaching Guide on our website, which curates recommended resources for teaching about Japanese Canadian internment, for the 2022-2023 school year; and develop, with the support of the Education Program Developer, lesson plans on Japanese culture and interactive history-themed activities for students' use during field trips and in classrooms.
