How do we ensure that the practice of remembrance continues? In order to ensure that memorialization efforts are shared intergenerationally, working with youth (in particular students) is a crucial step.
While it is not possible to know how many individual educators have developed one-off lesson plans that take up the Komagata Maru incident, here are two publicized resources for those interested in remembering through educating.
- The Komagata Maru Project of Simon Fraser University commissioned The Critical Think Consortium (TC2) to develop lesson plans, learning materials and curriculum for teachers. For more information, visit http://komagatamarujourney.ca/lesson_plans
- The Sikh Missionary Society U.K. has a Study Guide for children and young adults, focused on the Komagata Maru incident. This community organization has an impressive online library with free publications. For the Study Guide, visit http://www.sikhmissionarysociety.org/sms/smspublications/Guru_Nanak_Jahaz_book.pdf
