Teaching Asian American Studies: A Critical Introduction & Conversation for CT K-12 Teachers
Asian American Studies is a dynamic and wide-ranging field that has been taught for more than 50 years in university and K-12 classrooms across the country. The recent rise in violent and racist attacks against Asian Americans makes the need to bring this work, and other fields in ethnic studies, all the more urgent.
This webinar gathers scholars, teachers, and students to introduce the contours of Asian American studies, classroom examples of how it’s taught, youth voices about the need for Asian American studies, and a guide to curricular resources.
This panel is part of a series which offers K-12 educators, students, community-members and scholars “bite-sized” introductions to the central principles, practices, and pedagogies around the broad themes of race and resistance. The webinar is sponsored by Anti-Racist Teaching & Learning Collective (ARTLC) , Connecticut Council for the Social Studies, UCONN Asian and Asian American Studies Institute, Yale University’s Education Studies Program, Yale’s Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration (RITM), and Public Humanities at Yale.
