Reading Like a Historian:
Atomic Bomb
Description
In this lesson, students analyze primary source documents in an
effort to answer the central historical question: How should we
remember the dropping of the atomic bomb? First, students are told
that they will choose an appropriate photo to accompany a U.N.
website commemorating the dropping of the bomb. Students are
then introduced to 2 narratives about WWII: "Hiroshima as
Victimization" (the Japanese point of view) vs. "Hiroshima as
Triumph" (the American point of view). The class is then divided
into 2 halves, each of which looks at a variety of source documentsanecdotes, letters, and data-through its side's point of view only.
Students then form groups of 4 to choose which image should be
used in the "website." Each group shares its image and explains
why they chose it. In a final discussion, the class talks about
whether the bomb should have been dropped and whether they can
second-guess a decision like Truman's.
