Community & Identity: Exploring Chinese American Experiences in Literature
Professional Learning Workshop
November 8, 2021, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Join Teaching the Hudson Valley for a conversation with MOCA’s Education Department where we explore how to use the museum’s free, text-based resources to enhance our efforts at building more inclusive classrooms.
Together, we’ll analyze a range of writings that give voice to the manifold experiences of Chinese Americans—texts that both challenge and exacerbate stereotypes of Asian Americans, and help us identify historical misrepresentations and omissions. Throughout the session, we’ll consider how Chinese Americans have represented themselves from the early 1800s to the present day and how they’ve been represented by others. Then, we’ll reflect on the balance of voices in our own English and Social Studies classrooms.
Best for educators of students grades 6-12. CTLE credits available.
