Celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

In support of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, our GATE activities for May are focused on AAPI culture, heritage, and history.

The First Lady of Physics

This brief video highlights the scientific career of Chien-Shiung Wu. The "Untold History" guide is filled with activities to use for follow up or individual reflection/interpretation. The A-E-I-O-U chart (pictured below), in particular, is a great way to engage in deeper dialogue between students.
Big picture
While our secondary students can see the A-E-I-O-U chart and run with it, our youngest learners can still use it to draw a picture response for these questions, write a single word, phrase, or complete sentences. This is truly an activity that everyone can engage in, regardless of ability or learning level.
