Two UNLADYLIKE2020 shorts about Asian American women who faced intense anti-Asian racism in the early 20th century, Tye Leung Schulze and Anna May Wong, will be screened as part of a educational webinar hosted by WNET and EdWeb titled “Current Events in Context: Connecting Asian American History and Anti-Asian Racism.” This presentation comes at a particularly challenging time in contemporary American life. With content for elementary, middle, and high school teachers, along with resources for principals, school librarians and curriculum leaders, this edWebinar will use media and specially developed lesson plans by WNET to help teachers answer students’ questions and contextualize current events through a broader understanding of Asian American history.
The presenters will share strategies and approaches for framing conversations, using writing prompts and encouraging civil discourse and critical thinking about anti-Asian racism, and include: Cathlin Goulding, Ed.D., Co-Director, YURI: An Asian American Education Project, and Teacher, Adolescent Social Studies Program, City University of New York; Freda Lin, Co-Director, YURI: An Asian American Education Project; and Kristina Kirtley, Senior Producer, Content and Youth Engagement, WNET New York Public Media. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation, and teachers can obtain a Continuing Education Certificate for their participation.
