We Are Teachers
The term AAPI, or Asian American and Pacific Islander, includes 23 million Americans from roughly 50 ethnic groups with roots in more than 40 countries. This is a hugely diverse group, so it’s important to include AAPI books with ties to many countries and cultural backgrounds in your classroom library.
While AAPI Heritage Month in May is a wonderful time to engage students with AAPI books, you can and should incorporate these important stories into your classroom throughout the year.
