Asian Heritage Month - 2018

ETFO's 2018 Asian & South Asian Heritage Month poster - Text version available below on this page

While Bastion students and I learned a lot during Black History Month in February, this year we thought we would also WONDER about Asian Heritage Month.  As the teacher-librarian I'm finding we do not have a lot of resources on this theme - I will slowly try to change that.

The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) suggests we explore the following themes:
  • The Continuous Journey Regulation and the Komagata Maru;
  • The Chinese Migrant Workers of the Gold Rush and Canadian Pacific Railway;
  • The Chinese Immigration Act;
  • Japanese Internment during the Second World War;
  • Anti-Asian Riots of the early 1900s; and
  • Islamophobic hate crimes in recent reports. 

In the meantime, let us check out what is at the public library as well as digital resources.  Please share with me any great resources you learn about.
