Asian American and Pacific Islander history is American history, but is often left out of curriculums in K-12 schools. Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC, fiscal sponsor of The Asian American Education Project is announcing a series of free workshops for K-12 teachers designed to promote the inclusion of historically and culturally competent curriculum about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) nationwide.

K-12 Asian American Curriculum Teacher Training Workshops start on April 18. In this series of virtual workshops, the Asian American Education Project will be showcasing curriculum on the AAPI experience. It is divided into themes to make it easier for educators to adapt the whole or part of the curriculum into their own practice. The workshop participants will:

  • Learn more about some of the content of each thematic unit
  • Learn how to navigate our website
  • Be able to apply our curriculum into their teaching practice

Educators will learn about how Asian immigrants have contributed and shaped the way the country is today since their arrival as far back as the 1800s. From labor activism to fighting for school integration and citizenship rights in the courts, and against model minority, perpetual foreigner stereotypes and anti-Asian hate, this one of the fastest-growing populations has faced adversity, and fought for opportunities to create roots here in the U.S.

Help us spread the word to provide a more inclusive curriculum to schools nationwide.
