From Immigrants to Citizens: Asian Pacific Americans in the Northwest

Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers to explore the histories and cultures of Asian immigrants in the Pacific Northwest and their significance to the nation.

The Wing Luke Memorial Foundation (dba Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience) seeks funding to present our popular Landmark workshops, "From Immigrants to Citizens: Asian Pacific Americans in the Northwest". Building on the success of our 2014 and 2016 workshops, we propose 2 week-long sessions in July 2019 led by the 2016 team of our Education staff in partnership with preeminent scholars and veteran K-12 educators. The long history of Asian Pacific Americans in the Northwest provides a wealth of landmark sites and historical materials on which to base K-12 professional development training to engage students in learning about APA immigrant histories and the many cultures that shaped our nation. The need for training is clear based on the continued lack of published curriculum and persistent under-resourcing of materials and training for K-12 teachers on APA history. In 2019, we will build on our existing program to include newly available sites/materials.
