American History Through the Lens of Chinese American Trailblazers

The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) redefines the American narrative one story at a time. MOCA engages audiences in ongoing and historical dialogue in which people of all backgrounds are able to see American history through a critical perspective, reflect on their own experiences, and make meaningful connections between the past and the present, the global and the local, themselves and others.

MOCA’s learning resources include MOCA Heroes, a free digital nonfiction magazine series that explores the lives of Chinese American trailblazers. One article in MOCA Heroes introduces children in grades 4–6 to Maya Lin, the world-famous artist, sculptor, and architect. Another article teaches children in grades 4–6 about the lives and experiences of the Chinese railroad workers who built America’s first transcontinental railroad. As they read the articles, children are encouraged to consider questions such as “What was life like for the first Chinese immigrants who moved to America?” “What customs and traditions did they bring with them?” “How did the Chinese American community come together?” “What were their struggles and accomplishments?”
