Examining Assimilation: AAPI and Jewish Stories in America
May 18th, 2022
4PM - 5PM EST
Our webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
How can we help students examine assimilation as a concept? Focusing on the experiences of Asian and Jewish immigrants to the United States, this webinar will explore the problematic nature of the word to describe a process of how people adapt, fit in, and learn to become “American,” and the obstacles they face in trying to do so. Our guest speaker, Ting-Yi Oei is the Education Director for the 1882 Foundation which seeks to illuminate the history of Asian Americans in the United States. This webinar is a special offering for the coinciding Asian American- Pacific Islander History Month and Jewish-American Heritage Month.
