These portraits and biographies of outstanding APIA women were created by students from the Asian American Studies Department (AAS) at San Francisco State University (SFSU) and have been adapted by TACT for Grade 2. All are free downloads but a $5 donation to the TACT Curriculum Committee would be most appreciated!
Encourage students to find main ideas and draw items that depict the work of the individuals in the space around their portrait:
Ruth Asawa, Elaine Chao, Christine Chen, Heather Fong, Jacqueline Nguyen, Mine Okubo, Velma Veloria, Flossie Wong-Staal
Additional biographies may be found in TACT: Crossing Boundaries.
