Illinois made history in 2021 as the first U.S. state to pass the Teaching Equitable Asian American Community History (TEAACH) Act, which mandates the inclusion of one unit of Asian American history in K-12 public schools throughout the state.
This free one-day summer academy, hosted by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s College of Education, provides an opportunity for educators to convene to reflect on the passage of TEAACH, learn about valuable resources in Asian American curriculum development, and discuss continued challenges and opportunities for the critical inclusion of Asian American voices in U.S. history. Professional development hours will be offered for educators licensed in the State of Illinois.
Sponsor: College of Education and The Asian American Foundation
