This unit encourages students to explore the history and current situation of Chinese Americans. Organized around five lesson plans, the unit's first lesson begins with the students' own perceptions of Chinese Americans, followed by a quiz that provides relevant background information. The second lesson examines the general history of Chinese Americans, while the third looks at the history of San Francisco's Chinatown. The fourth lesson offers one of two alternatives: a slide presentation or an actual walking tour of San Francisco's Chinatown. (The slides are not included with this document). The last lesson is reserved for debriefing and concluding the unit. A minimum of one class is needed for each lesson; lessons two and three require more time. A number of student handouts and a bibliography that lists materials concerning Chinese Americans are included. Eight teacher's appendices also are included: (1) "Racism in the Comics" by Michio Kaku; (2) Key to quiz; (3) Key to population graphs; (4) Discussion questions on San Francisco Chinatown; (5) Geographic distribution of Chinese Americans; (6) Occupations and earnings of Chinese Americans; (7) Script for slide presentation; and (8) Teacher materials for walking tour.
