I never remember learning about the contributions made by Asians in school, outside of the railroad.
This is one of the reasons I love to homeschool. At home, we are excited to celebrate an all-inclusive curriculum.
Teaching children a multicultural curriculum not only builds the self-esteem, but also prepares them for the world and teaches empathy and culture. Which is all extremely Important on becoming a highly functioning adult.
Not only does my daughter learn to appreciate the contributions that have made her life more comfortable, but she also loves to enjoy the foods and learn about the heroes!
It’s always exciting to learn about and meet ordinary people who did extraordinary things. Whether they were breaking Olympic records, bringing education to millions of people around the world, or speaking up for the rights of others, these Asian-Americans broke stereotypes and took a stand to make the world a better place.
These two books (pictured below) highlight the talent and contributions of Asian-American leaders and changemakers from around the United States. Readers of all backgrounds will be empowered to discover what they too can achieve. These strong, courageous, talented, and diverse men and women have built a legacy of extraordinary achievements that will inspire generations to pursue their dreams.
If you’re interested in learning more about what we studied this month, stay tuned because I’ll be posting some of our extended studies activities.
Both of these books can be found on Amazon.com
