Asian American History/Herstory: Race and Citizenship


Module 2 discusses the history of Asian immigration to the United States and the ways US legislation, court cases, and policies restricted immigration, citizenship, and equal access to schooling. In this module, you'll be asked to interrogate your awareness of (Asian) American history, how histories/herstories are reproduced, and how Asian Americans are racialized in US society. You will be asked to construct essential questions, develop potential resources, create a lesson plan, and reflect on your learning. This module will take approximately 12 hours to complete. Each section, including the introduction, is worth 3 professional development points.
