Celebrating Asian American Experiences in the Classroom
“As an adult who has gone through the American school system, you might feel stuck because you also realize how little you know about Asian American history and people. It is a huge challenge to teach about what we don’t know. If this is the case, I hope you’ll consider turning your research into a joint learning opportunity that you can share with your students.” -- Elizabeth Kleinrock, Learning for Justice, 2021.
