Legislation to Action
In response to new legislation enacted in Illinois and New Jersey, YURI Education Project is offering services to schools seeking support integrating Asian American studies into their curriculum.
Services and Supports
Workshops and Institutes
We offer targeted professional learning for teachers on teaching Asian America and addressing the learning needs of this fast-growing racial demographic in the U.S. All participants receive ready-to-use materials and strategies for their classrooms.
We tailor in-service teacher development for school sites. We also conduct strategic planning with school leaders as they make strides towards enacting new curricular requirements.
We design new curriculum for teachers to use in their social studies and ELA classes. We also provide direction on using YURI's collections of easy-to-implement curriculum and rich, youth-friendly educational media.
From Policy to Practice
While Asian American Studies has existed as an academic field in higher education for more than 40 years, this field has been less emphasized in PK-12 curricula. With growing calls to include these narratives more expansively within classrooms across the U.S., YURI Education Project provides concrete teaching strategies and pedagogy on how to bring these untold stories into PK-12 classrooms.
