Abstract

This learning module aims to teach high school students about the Asian American identity in America. Learning about diverse identities can prompt student development through the creation of an environment that all students feel safe to participate in and provide diverse perspectives that can help students develop their own identities. Students in the course will learn about important Asian American events, stereotypes and their origins, and current problems facing the community. It is designed to be a 6-week online supplemental course and provides connections to other historical events taught in high school social science.
