Asian American History Curriculum

While people of color as a whole are barely visible in the traditional narrative of American history, Asian Americans are perhaps the most ignored minority group in school curriculum.  Below are resources available online, including lessons I have created myself to bring Asian/Asian American history into the classroom.  I have intentionally focused on works created by Asian American community members and scholars rather than more mainstream historical or teaching sources that often present an outsider view of ethnic histories.

Early Asian Immigration to America

Japanese Incarceration (Internment)

Asian Americans post-1965

Resources for Specific Asian American Groups

General Asian Culture & History

American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it.
