Curriculum Writing Institutes
Bringing Asian American History into the Classroom
Do you need support planning lessons with Asian American history in mind?
Feel confident teaching students history through a multicultural, social justice lens.
Start your next unit out strong with pre- planned, relevant, and effective lessons that honor Asian American history and culture.
Gain a stronger understanding of Asian American history
Instead of spending hours poring over books and the internet, get an overview of Asian American Studies themes and history to help you start on a stronger foundation to develop lessons.
Create entry points for these stories in your curriculum
Educators are mandated to follow standards using textbooks with virtually zero Asian American history. We will help you find what you need to integrate Asian American stories into your classroom.
Be in a community with educators doing similar work
Stop being the teacher doing this work all alone in your classroom. Collaborate with educators and get individualized coaching sessions.
During this 2-day Curriculum Writing Institute, educators will create lesson plans and strategies centering Asian American stories within their curriculum by:
getting an overview of Asian American Studies themes and history
closely examining a variety of resources and determining ways to integrate this into the classroom
collaborating with other educators
getting one-on-one coaching with Co-Director, Freda Lin
