This one-day workshop coincides with the K. W. Lee Center for Leadership interns' larger project, which is to implement an Asian American studies course into LAUSD schools with significant Asian American student populations.

They're primarily aiming to reach teachers with an area of expertise in history an/or social studies, with an eventual goal to help train quality teachers to teach Asian American studies at LAUSD schools in the future. Sounds like a really great opportunity, so don't miss out.
