Asian American & Pacific Islander Perspectives & Experiences
Students analyze a map to gather their background knowledge of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) perspectives and experiences and read an historical newspaper article to launch further investigation into ways that AAPI individuals and organizations engaged as civic actors in U.S. history. Next, students consider how art and literature provide windows, mirrors, and sliding doors to AAPI perspectives and experiences. After, students create a digital artifact that reveals how Asian American and Pacific Islanders have engaged civically and contributed to U.S. culture.
