Pearl Harbor and the Power of Perspective    
Saturday, January 28, 2017 / 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  

It was an early Sunday morning in paradise when warplanes screamed across the peaceful skies of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Learn more about this fateful moment in history through the personal stories and personal effects of the people who lived through it: tourists, nurses, local residents and, of course, American and Japanese servicemen and women.  During this engaging and inquiry-based professional development teachers will:


  • Consider the importance of teaching historic events through multiple perspectives
  • Participate in a question development activity focused on Pearl Harbor that is easily reproducible in the classroom  
  • Examine evidence in the Frazier’s temporary exhibit Personal Stories of Pearl Harbor
  • View live performances sharing the experiences of two eye witnesses to the event  
  • Receive lessons and activities for use in the classroom   


The cost is FREE to professional educatorsThe $15 fee for this program has been provided by a grant through the Frazier Museum’s “Bridge to History” Project, generously funded by Louisville Metro Government and the UPS Foundation.
