*Almost* American: A Book Chat and Zine-Making Working

Start Date: May 17, 2022
End Date: May 17, 2022
Time Detail: 4:30PM to 6:30PM (PDT)
Location: Online
Type of Course: Online Seminars and Workshops
Audience: This program is designed for secondary teachers in English/Language Arts, Social Studies, Ethnic Studies, and Visual Arts; however, elementary educators are encouraged and welcome to join as they will find ways to adapt the content to their curriculum.
Course Description: This online workshop will open with conversation about teachable moments in Robin Ha’s Almost American Girl: An Illustrated Memoir— e.g. isolation immigrants experience when overcoming culture shock and adjusting to a new language, school, employment, and social life. Ha’s story of arriving to the United States from Korea also reveals how the umbrella term “Asian American” obscures the vast diversity of identities and cultures. After the discussion, the group will create a personal identity zine page together while discussing ways to adapt this project for students. *No art skills required—just paper and markers.

Participants will receive a copy of Almost American Girl: An Illustrated Memoir by Robin Ha in advance to read and discuss during the workshop.
