2019 NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for School Teachers

Location:幸运快3 Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, Seattle, Washington

Application Submission Deadline:幸运快3 March 1, 2019 (Must be postmarked by this date)

Notification of Awardees: March 29 (Awardees must accept or decline by April 5)

  • Session 1: July 7-13 (Sunday – Saturday)
  • Session 2: July 21-27 (Sunday – Saturday)

Teachers Receive a Stipend of $1,200 for their participation.

The Wing Luke Museum(the Wing) invites educators to Seattle to experience American history through the stories of, through the eyes of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans who built this and other regions of our nation. Join scholars, historians, a playwright, artists and museum professionals to explore these histories through lecture, exploration of historic sites, and curriculum development. We will work together to further develop your love of American history and to create lessons for your classrooms using archival documents, artifacts and place-based teaching.

Asian and Pacific Islander Americans played, and continue to play, significant roles in the transformation of regions, cities, and communities。 These immigrants, refugees and Americans are greatly ignored in the discourse on which peoples helped build America; whether the railroads, in mining, salmon or other fisheries, aquaculture, aviation, civil rights and social change。

幸运快3The Wing’s week-long institutes are structured around the themes of Immigration and Exclusion (mid-1880s-1924), Struggles and Contributions of Laborers (1870-present), and Representation and Memorialization (1898-present)。 We will focus on the hidden histories of the Asian Pacific American pioneers, from the earliest Native Hawaiians who navigated the Pacific Coast and worked for the Hudson Bay Trading Company in the early 1800s through the Chinese, Punjabi and other South Asians, Filipino, Korean and Japanese immigrant laborers who were integral to the pre-World War II development of this region and beyond。

The workshop will offer experiences rooted in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District, field trips to regional sites of historic and cultural significance, and presentations from national faculty.

For over 50 years, the Wing has been and continues to be a leader in community-based cultural, historical and contemporary arts museums. Our mission is to “connect everyone to the dynamic history, cultures and art of Asian Pacific Americans through vivid storytelling and inspiring experiences, to advance racial and social equity.” Through our scholarship, historic interpretation, collections, storytelling, collaborations and our dynamic work of partnering with schools and districts to enhance social studies, history and ELA programs—the Wing seeks to tell a wider story of our region and nation.

We are transitioning to a new website in the next few weeks. As such, we have listed all the relevant information that is available within each of the bullets below.

Wing Luke Museum has reserved rooms for up to 40 people at the American Hotel located here in the Chinatown-International District. The American is a hostel with mostly shared rooms, but participants in previous years have appreciated the proximity to the museum, and the affordability of the rooms. We are looking into other accommodations, but are conscientious about keeping the cost down, as Seattle has become a relatively expensive city. The cost for a single room is $80 and up. Shared rooms $45 and up.

The Wing Luke Museum will be handling room registration for the American Hotel for their room block. For more information and questions, please contact vchan@krajty.com

Praise from Past Participants

“…The speakers were passionate and resourceful about the topic and providing ways to incorporate artifacts, text, and other evidence. The speakers were engaging and relevant and hearing their personal stories and experiences added a component to the workshop that made an emotional impact. This is so important as we attempt to broaden our students understanding of our history and how they fit in to that.”

 “…What was most helpful were the onsite visits to the locations we read about。 it really put the experiences to a more tangible reality。 The overarching approach that most of the lectures had about the subject matter was also enlightening as it helps to maintain a wider lens with which to view the time frames。”

 “…Even thought there were plenty of materials to read prior to the workshop, I find them very useful for my preparation of this study。”

 “…The content was terrific!! The field trips were equally terrific。 I think the Port Townsend trip was so valuable in tying in how immigration worked in the PNWH instead of simply as an Angel Island focus, which most teachers w/o the workshop would do。”

 “…I now have a deeper understanding of AA/PI immigration experience and the obstacles and challenges that they faced in their new home country. Dr. Fujita-Rony’s presentation on “home” and space was powerful. I will be using her questions and ideas in my courses as I teach modern day movements of people.”

 “…The speakers were very knowledgeable on their subjects and willing to engage the teachers as well as challenges current practices of teaching history. I am leaving here with different tenses to view history current student needs (Saturday lecture with Dr. Hune had a renewed energy to avoid timeline teaching of event by event but start from stories – people and extrapolate. I feel that there is a huge room for expansion of this concept.”

School Partnerships

You and your students will get the most out of a year-long partnership with The Wing. Our partnerships are comprehensive school year-long programs starting with teacher professional development and coaching, classroom-to-museum curriculum integration, and student visits to the museum, which can be followed up with direct parent engagement. We have teamed up with Highline Public Schools district for several years, working with its entire 4th grade during the school year and with its incoming middle school students during the summer. Individual public schools and independent schools have worked with us to integrate curriculum, coaching, training and field trips into all their grade levels as well as to support their ELA, Social Studies, Humanities, Ethnic Studies and Race Equity programs. We also work with college-level and graduate-level programs at several universities in areas, such as social work, public health, urban development, public policy, and museology.

幸运快3This longer-term, deeper relationship between the museum and schools is creating a more positive experience for teachers and students, with students arriving more prepared to dialogue, analyze history and explore。 Teachers have expressed appreciation for how this program has made the connection to Common Core easier。 During each school year, we welcome the opportunity to partner with your school and the greater community that supports your institution。 We recognize that a full package may seem like a large commitment and may even be outside of some school budgets。 However, each component can be selected independently or in different configurations to design a partnership that better fits your school’s needs。 Pricing varies depending on the combination of services requested。

About the Author and Artist

Lawrence Matsuda

幸运快3Lawrence Matsuda was born in the Minidoka, Idaho Concentration Camp during World War II.

He and his family were among the approximately 120,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese held without due process for approximately three years or more。 Matsuda has a Ph。D。 in Education from the University of Washington and was: a secondary teacher, university counselor, state level administrator, school principal, assistant superintendent, educational consultant, and visiting professor at Seattle University (SU)。

In 2005, he and two SU colleagues co-edited the book, Community and difference: teaching, pluralism and social justice, Peter Lang Publishing, New York. It won the 2006 National Association of Multicultural Education Philip Chinn Book Award. In July 2010, his book of poetry entitled, A Cold Wind from Idaho, was published by Black Lawrence Press in New York.

His poems appear in Ambush Review, Raven Chronicles, New Orleans Review, Floating Bridge Review, Black Lawrence Press website, Poets Against the War website, Cerise PressNostalgia Magazine, PlumepoetryMalpais Review, Zero Ducats, Surviving Minidoka (book), Meet Me at Higo(book), Minidoka:  An American Concentration Camp (book and photographs), Tidepools Magazine, and the Seattle Journal for Social Justice.

In addition, eight of his poems were the subject of a 60-minute dance presentation entitled, Minidoka, performed by Whitman College students in Walla Walla, Washington (2011).

His new book, Glimpses of a Forever Foreigner, published by CreateSpace was released in August 2014. It is a collection of Matsuda’s poetry and Roger Shimomura’s art.

Matt Sasaki

Matt Sasaki was born in Seattle, Washington, the only boy amongst three sisters。 He and his siblings grew up in the neighborhood of Beacon Hill。 His father was a pharmacist and mother a schoolteacher。 As a child, Matt channeled his youthful energy into drawing bizarre characters and creating storylines for the little ballpoint pen books he created out of scraps of paper and staples。 Soon little Matty discovered that if he did art projects for his teachers, he could get out of doing real schoolwork。

In his young adult years, Matt worked nights stocking shelves in a neighborhood grocery store while taking classes at the Art Institute of Seattle. After he graduated, he could not find work in the commercial art field, so he took classes in automobile collisions repair and found a job in a local body shop. Later, Matt started painting signs. During this time, he went back to school to study digital art and computer graphics at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology.

Matt lives with his wife, their serial killer cat and a very sweet old dog in a Zen-like home surrounded by a peaceful stand of tall evergreen trees north of Seattle.

Samples of his work can be found at: 。

Our field trip yesterday was amazing.  I appreciate how you have it organized.  Lunch in the park was perfect.  Your docents are truly top notch.  I learned so much<-
