Teaching the Invisible Race: Embodying a Pro-Asian American Lens in Schools

Teaching the Invisible Race: Embodying a Pro-Asian American Lens in Schools

In Teaching the Invisible Race, anti-bias and anti-racist educator and researcher Tony DelaRosa (he, siya) delivers an insightful and hands-on treatment of how to embody a pro-Asian American lens in your classroom while combating anti-Asian hate in your school.

The author offers stories, case studies, research, and frameworks that will help you build the knowledge, mindset, and skills you need to teach Asian-American history and stories in your curriculum.

You’ll learn to embrace Asian American joy and a pro-Asian American lens―as opposed to a deficit lens―that is inclusive of Brown and Southeast Asian American perspectives and disability narratives. You’ll also find:
• Self-interrogation exercises regarding major Asian American concepts and social movements
• Ways to center Asian Americans in your classroom and your school
• Information about how white supremacy and anti-Blackness manifest in relation to Asian America, both internally and externally

An essential resource for educators, school administrators, and K-12 school leaders, Teaching the Invisible Race will also earn a place in the hands of parents, families, and community members with an interest in advancing social justice in the Asian American context.
