May is AAPI Heritage Month

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. If you want to know a bit about the history of how this came to be, Mental Floss has a good summary in its article, “6 Facts about Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.” With recent events showing an escalation of violence against AAPI people in the United States, you may want to take a look at these resources from Learning for Justice to help you discuss both the past and the present with your students so we can combat racism and stereotypes that lead to the kind of hatred that some people use to justify these vile acts. For more ideas on how to end racism in our country, I invite you to follow my Anti-Racism Wakelet, to which I add a new educational resource each week.
