Welcome to the professional development series for the Teaching Equitable Asian American Community History (TEAACH) Act, sponsored by the College of Education at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and approved by the Illinois State Board of Education. This series is funded by a grant from the Asian American Foundation. 

What is in This Professional-Development Module Series?

This professional development series has three modules, each broken into three sections and includes an introduction. Though participants can pick and choose which modules and sections to complete, we highly recommend completing modules in their entireties, when possible. Similarly, we recommend beginning with Module 1.
