9th-12th Grade: Histories of Westward Expansion



About AAVEd

A one-sided narrative of America’s complex history is the foundation of bias, stereotypes, and other forms of racial prejudice. At AAVEd, we promote the teaching of Asian American history and that of other underrepresented groups in public K-12 schools. By understanding how our diverse histories and cultures form the nation, we can uproot damaging beliefs and co-exist more peacefully.
