an interdisciplinary curriculm & resource guide

Vietnam. One word that evokes so many images – a war, a homeland, an exodus, a past a foreign place.

Vietnamese American. Not only Vietnamese. Not only American. Not one or the other, but both Vietnamese and American. Two words connected. Two worlds intertwined.

Designed for use with learners in grades 7 and above, this curriculum guide sheds light on the complexities of this unique identity group — and encourages users to bridge cultural gaps through awareness of shared experiences.
