BUILDING COMMUNITY WITH ASIAN AMERICAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER LITERATURE

Hate crimes targeting Asian Americans are at unprecedented levels. Teachers have long held that literature can be a tool for combating divisiveness in society. How have you explored the use of AAPI books and poetry in your curriculum? How can we make inclusion of stories from these communities a classroom norm? How do you foster courageous conversations and inquiry-based research to broaden students’ perspectives and foster solidarity?

Schools have often been accused of eating their young. Assigning novice teachers the toughest classes and most remote classrooms, we seem to expect them to sink or swim. How can we do better? What systems are in place at your school to help young teachers thrive? What advice do you have for someone entering the profession? What do you wish you knew when you began teaching?
