Teaching Asian America Book Cover
"Teaching Asian America in Elementary Classrooms is a critically important book that I wish my son's teachers had read. If you teach Asian American children or want to understand Asian American education at the elementary level, you need this incredible book."
Wayne Au, Professor, UW Bothell School of Educational Studies and Rethinking Schools editor
“This book is a vital tool in helping teachers tell the story of Asian America. It is the story of America itself, and it deserves to be shared with every student, at every age, all year round.”
Christina Soontornvat, three-time Newbery Honor recipient
“This book offers a place to enter when inquiring about Asian and Asian Americans with the full complexity of those categorical markers. With both examples and a humility on the part of the authors, readers are invited into an often invisiblized reality in the U.S. that have always been connected to Asian American organizing for rights over the past two centuries.”
Leigh Patel, Professor, University of Pittsburgh
