Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month is celebrated during May, offering a timely reminder of why and how educators should be honoring AAPI history and identity all year long. These resources debunk the model minority myth, explain the Hawaiian concept of aloha, challenge the erasure of Sikh Americans and more.
Teaching Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage
Join us April 30 for a special webinar, where we’ll unpack the origins and complexity of the term “Asian American Pacific Islander,” discuss the model minority myth and provide educators with resources to effectively teach AAPI history!
The myth of the “model minority” is pervasive. It does real damage. And Asian American students aren’t the only ones it harms.
This video excerpt is from A Place in the Middle: The True Meaning of Aloha, a 2014 short documentary film. The film can be viewed in its entirety here.
