Activities for Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
The Smithsonian Pacific American Center’sLearning Together webpage serves as an online venue for educational content featuring interviews with Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community members, links to community-created educational resources, book recommendations, discussion ideas, and more. Visitors to the page will find activities and videos addressing anti-Asian racism and xenophobia. English language arts teachers can tap resources about Asian American and Pacific Islander voices in literature. All the content complements social studies units, and the activities are suitable for all ages. The grids on the page will expand with new content and activities throughout the year.
Children and teens are bullied in schools all across the country, including many Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) youth who face unique cultural, religious, and language barriers that can keep them from getting help. The nonprofit Act To Change empowers students, families, and educators with the knowledge and tools they need to help stop and prevent bullying in their communities.
