This is the report of a project designed to train secondary school teachers and other ethnic studies personnel in Hawaii in the area of Asian American literature so as to enhance their understanding of ethnic identity, interethnic relations, and the process of American multiculturalism. The project performance report includes a description of a bibliography developed by the project, a list of teachers trained to use materials developed under the project, and a description of inservice courses offered. In addition, five sample secondary school curriculum units developed by individuals trained under the multicultural education program are presented.
