In this post, I am sharing a Unit Plan & Materials that I created centered around learning about AAPI Leaders in History! This is a great lesson to START to talk about AAPI History and introduce students to some key AAPI Leaders. Please make sure the conversations do not just stop here. Check out the unit plan and materials here!
This month I am doing an AAPI Studies Series for Colorful Pages. My hope is to release a plethora of resources for educators, families, and librarians to ensure that our history and heritage is taught. In this booklist, I share 15 books about AAPI Leaders for elementary students, consisting of mostly picture books! Each book is written or co-written by an AAPI author because we must center AAPI voices while teaching our heritage and history. I have organized this list into two categories: (1) Books Featuring Multiple AAPI Leaders, and (2) Books Featuring a Specific AAPI Leader.
