Students study radiation, communication, and culture throughout the curriculum. We will focus our study on the impact of nuclear war through children’s stories as a way to promote empathy for others. Students will learn about the effects of radiation, experience the impact of atomic war on culture through readings and documentaries, and learn about Japanese children who experienced WWII in Japan and about those who also experienced the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
