Edwards, Sarah; Foss, Abigail
New Advocate, v13 n4 p391-93 Fall 2000
Describes teaching tolerance with 125 eighth-grade language arts students. Discusses how, through a critical examination of two picture books on the internment of Japanese Americans by the United States government during World War II, students were able to shed light on this historical event, while also learning for themselves how the truth is found in the sum of multiple perspectives.
