Building upon the legacy of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center

Asian Americans K-12 Education Curriculum

Asian Americans Lesson Plans

Through relevant and engaging lesson plans and activities, the resources developed will seek to inspire a deeper understanding of the history, current experience, and future trajectory of our nation's fastest-growing demographic group. Important content and themes explored in the series will be used to teach concepts while meeting national content standards.

"With all of the turmoil and racism occurring everywhere since the onset of COVID-19, having stories about the long-overlooked histories of Asian Americans is more timely and needed than ever. As the Engagement and Education Partner for the film, we are equally proud to also serve as the lead in developing the curriculum of 36 lesson plans. We hope our curriculum will continue the dialogue inspired by the film and further stimulate the current perspectives and future actions of students all over the nation."
