Are you getting ready to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in your classroom or school? Would you like a template filled with resources to jumpstart your planning? If so, look no further!
Literacy & Numeracy
For starters, we’ve got resources from the Smithsonian Museums and the Census Bureau - from history and culture to numbers (plus, for the elementary set, a BrainPop lesson)!
We’ve also got two great reading lists -- one for YA and one that skews a little younger. While we’re on the subject of reading, how about an author study on Korean-American school librarian turned best-selling author and movie executive, Jenny Han?! We’ve got print and video interviews to kick it off.
We are all Americans
The last segment of the template shares an interview with a Chinese American high school senior talking about his personal experiences, and a link to resources for anti-AAPI bullying. If one thing comes out of this month’s heritage celebration, we hope it’s respect for the diversity of cultures that make up our country.
