Pin@y Educational Partnerships: A Filipina/o American Studies Sourcebook


What’s all the buzz about?

This innovative source book encourages educators and students to actively engage in the learning of Filipina/o American Studies. With engrossing lesson plans and workshops, this is a comprehensive resource for educators, service-providers, students, and community members interested in the teaching and learning of Filipina/o American Studies.

“Dr. Tintiangco-Cubales's book materializes critical pedagogy. It offers a lesson plan format that allows for cultural production, community building, and interactive dialogue. This type of pedagogical scholarship is greatly needed and pioneering. I am positive this book will be used extensively by teachers from K-12 to higher education nationwide. It can also be used as a model to develop innovative and exciting teaching and learning programs on the experiences of other ethnic and racial groups in the United States.”
