AANHPI Heritage: Documenting Journeys

Why should we teach students about Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) heritage? These lessons and resources for educators and parents provide an opportunity to share the contributions and achievements of individuals from these communities in all aspects of society, including politics, sports, science, the arts, and more. It’s also a chance to educate people about the history of discrimination and racism faced by these communities, and the ongoing challenges they still face today. Teaching children about AANHPI heritage can help prevent the perpetuation of harmful stereotypes and discrimination by promoting empathy, understanding, and acceptance. By starting these conversations early, we can create a generation of young people who are equipped with the knowledge and skills to build a more inclusive and equitable future. Check out sample resources below, and get started with your lesson planning here.
