Chinese Americans: Realities and Myths Anthology. Secondary Curriculum Kit.
Huang, Joe, Ed.; Wong, Sharon Quan, Ed.
This resource anthology consists of reprinted articles and documents dealing with the Chinese American experience. It is intended for use in secondary school classrooms and is divided into three sections: history, community, and stereotypes. The history of the Chinese in the U.S. is detailed in works describing immigration policies and labor laws, in autobiographical accounts, and in articles on living conditions and social problems among Chinese Americans since the mid-1800's. In the section on community concerns, problems and issues facing the Chinese American community are addressed in articles published within the past decade. Among the issues discussed are Chinese ghetto communities, educational concerns such as bilingualism, and how racial discrimination against Chinese is related to discrimination against other groups. Finally, stereotypes historically and currently attributed to Chinese Americans are examined. These include stereotypes formed from political, racial and linguistic characteristics. Stereotypes of Asian women are also discussed. (GC)
