Every once in a while in class, I would take an entire class period and examine an event in detail. Look at it up close, instead of in an overview of a topic or time period. I also liked to pick an event the kids really didn’t know much about. The Doolittle raid on Japan, April 1942, is one of those lessons.
The raid was a secret plan, to “pay back” Japan for Pearl Harbor, and strike at he Japanese home islands.
