Asian American Studies Project: The Chinese American Experience and the Japanese American Experience. Elementary Guide, Intermediate Grades.
Richmond Unified School District, CA.
This Asian-American Curriculum Guide for the Richmond Unified School District was prepared by a team of teachers and students during the summer of 1972. These materials are related to the United States history textbooks currently in use at the intermediate grade level. Individual lessons are prepared so that they fit into the areas of the textbook where there is a lack of information on Asian American history. However, a large majority of the lessons are self contained. The Guide is prefaced by a general statement of goals and objectives. The lessons are arranged chronologically and topically. Each lesson is prefaced by a page suggesting resources, teaching objectives, and assignments and activities for the lesson. Included in the Guide are supplementary materials: (a) glossary; (b) "The Chinese and Japanese in America; A Bibliography" outlining the achievements and contributions of outstanding Asian-Americans; (c) "The Chinese and Japanese in America: A Chronology"; (d) "Bibliography of Books on Chinese Americans"; (e) "Bibliography of Books and Periodicals on Japanese Americans"; (f) list of books pertaining to Chinese and Japanese available in the Richmond Public Library; and, (g) "Bibliography of Books on Multi-Racial Experience in America".
