The following lesson plan was produced as an assignment for Professor Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales' course "Critical Asian American Educational Experience and Pedagogy". I took this graduate level course towards the MA in Asian American Studies.
LESSON PLAN TITLE: Week 10 B. Asian American Critical Performance Pedagogy and Media Literacy
Guiding Question: How do we use the arts (film, theater, and poetry) in teaching Asian American Studies?
1. To introduce the concept of media literacy as a critical tool to analyze the
representation of Asian Americans in society
2. To introduce performance as a learning tool that can engage students in the process
of analyzing existing representation, develop problem-solving strategies, and build
community around said strategies.
