Breaking Barriers: An Asian-American Curriculum Unit.
Brombach, Catherine; Tice, Natasha Florey
A 10-day curriculum is presented for upper elementary grades to explore who is in power on the local, state, and federal levels; and to investigate why so few Asian Americans are in power; and to confront personal prejudices and break stereotypes about Asian Americans. The 10 days are devoted to the following: (1) distinguishing between prejudice and dislike, (2) stereotyping, (3) how stereotyping affects people, (4) prejudice as distinguished from oppression, (5) dispelling myths about Asian Americans, (6) characteristics of the U.S. power group, (7) current Asian American issues, (8) panel discussion of barriers Asian Americans have faced, (9) choosing an issue to change, and (10) continuing the discussion of social change through an action plan. An appendix contains role plays and worksheets, as well as summaries of the contributions of some famous Asian Americans. (Contains 28 references and an annotated bibliography of 46 sources.) (SLD)
