Abstract

This self-study of two Asian American teacher educators traces the coming-to-consciousness about their Asian American identities and subsequent efforts to teach Asian American histories in social studies methods courses. Using the frame of Asian American critical race theory (AsianCrit), the teacher educators describe their explorations of Asian American hybridity in their personal and professional lives. Given the near invisibility of Asian Americans in the dominant narrative of U.S. history and in PK-12 curriculum broadly, these teacher educators’ stories articulate the experience of never seeing oneself in history and the struggle to add stories to a history that leaves little room for the racial Other.
