Asian American history curriculum: Despite robust evidence that culturally relevant, youth-centered curricula can lead to social and academic benefits for youth of color, schools continue to overwhelmingly center Eurocentric perspectives in their educational practices. In light of a slew of state legislation that mandates Asian American history curriculum in states such as Illinois, California, and Connecticut, this project aims to improve Asian American history curriculum in schools by bringing together Asian American youth, community organizations, and K-12 teachers to collaboratively develop a curriculum centered on local community histories.
