PD 586 – Teaching and Telling Asian American Stories Virtual Symposium

June 1, 2022 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

While Asian American Studies has existed as an academic field in higher education for more than 40 years, this field is less emphasized in PK-12 curricula. Teaching and Telling Asian American Stories is a symposium for PK-12 teachers who love storytelling, especially stories from lesser-known Asian American communities. Recent legislation in Illinois and New Jersey has mandated the inclusion of Asian Americans in school curricula. But what about Asian American students in the Southern region of the U.S.? Given these policy shifts, this workshop aims to provide concrete teaching strategies and pedagogy on how to bring untold stories from Asian Americans into PK-12 classrooms.

Participants will gain an understanding of the historical background of Asian American studies in schools. Led by academics, community activists, and educators, participants will learn about Asian American literature, civic education, and immigrant voices in the Asian diaspora. Through these inquiry-driven sessions, attendees will be provided with ready-to-use materials and strategies for their classrooms.
