Transform How You Teach Asian American Narratives in your Schools!
In Teaching the Invisible Race, anti-bias and anti-racist educator and researcher Tony DelaRosa (he, siya) delivers an insightful and hands-on treatment of how to embody a pro-Asian American lens in your classroom while combating anti-Asian hate in your school. The author offers stories, case studies, research, and frameworks that will help you build the knowledge, mindset, and skills you need to teach Asian-American history and stories in your curriculum.
You'll learn to embrace Asian American joy and a pro-Asian American lens--as opposed to a deficit lens--that is inclusive of Brown and Southeast Asian American perspectives and disability narratives. You'll also find:
* Self-interrogation exercises regarding major Asian American concepts and social movements
* Ways to center Asian Americans in your classroom and your school
* Information about how white supremacy and anti-Blackness manifest in relation to Asian America, both internally and externally
An essential resource for educators, school administrators, and K-12 school leaders, Teaching the Invisible Race will also earn a place in the hands of parents, families, and community members with an interest in advancing social justice in the Asian American context.

"We do a lot of book studies in K-12 education professional development that never lead to changes in our classroom practices. However DelaRosa's book is simply not just a book to be studied but a book of action as it has research and theory based curriculum that educators can immediately implement and transform their teaching and classrooms to be more reflective of Asian American identities and histories."
--Dr. Anjalé Welton, Rupple-Bascom Professor of Education and Chair of Education Leadership and Policy Analysis at UW-Madison; co-author of Anti-racist Educational Leadership and Policy: Addressing Racism in Public Education
"This is the right book, at the right time, by an inspired author. DelaRosa puts art, care, and solidarity at the center of interdisciplinary Asian American Studies to prepare the next generation of primary and secondary educators to explore the truth about the Asian American experience where they live, work and teach. In the rush to meet this moment of reckoning with Asian American invisibility, many feel inspired to offer their passion, but DelaRosa offers tested experience in the classroom, rigorous research, and deep community engagement grounded in inter-racial solidarity. This is the book teachers have been waiting for because he weaves together diagnostics, frameworks, historical content, poetry, art, and models of empathic inquiry into Asian American lives."
--Dr. Jason Oliver Chang, Professor of History and Asian American Studies at University of Connecticut
"A book that is absolutely necessary and crucial in the fight for liberatory educational justice. Every educator needs to read Teaching the Invisible Race: Embodying a Pro-Asian American Lens in Schools. Tony DelaRosa blends the personal with the political, historical with the now, a halo-halo, hybrid that is truly Fil-Am, Asian-American. What an accessible book that all educators, regardless of your background, can learn from and ensure that ALL of their students are seen, heard, and celebrated. Maraming salamat Kuya Tony; kailangan natin itonglibro, tunayisangbagsak."
--Ethelyn Tumalad-Granados, Oregon Teacher of the Year 2022 and Founder of (Re)Present: Asian American Pacific Islander Oregon Educators Collective
"In a critical time of building multi-racial, multi-ethnic and multigenerational solidarity across the world, Asian American education is needed for current and future leaders everywhere. This book provides the resources, stories and validation to build resilient and beautiful connections to Asian American history and belongs in every classroom in Wisconsin and beyond."
--Francesca Hong, Wisconsin State Senator
"DelaRosa's book, Teaching the Invisible Race, offers genuine ways for Asian Americans to be seen and heard. DelaRosa puts the teachings of our ancestors in conversation with current and future educators by weaving together spoken word, stories, historical evidence, and what I believe is most compelling--pauses in the text--where we ask ourselves questions about what we are learning and how what it does to us. It is here, where we ALL become visible."
--Dr. Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales, Professor of Ethnic Studies, San Francisco State University
"What do you remember being taught about Asian American History in your K-12 education experience? What Asian American scholars and heroes can you name without looking them up? With Teaching the Invisible Race, Tony DelaRosa fills in a crucial gap in scholarship for educators and he does so in a book that is engaging, practical, and inspiring. Thank you, Tony, for bringing this important work to the field."
--Dr. Tina Owen-Moore, Superintendent at School District of Cudahy, Wisconsin
"Tony DelaRosa is the champion we all need. As a fellow parent and journalist, it is so exciting to see Tony taking these tremendous steps to make meaningful change in the lives of our children! We need to celebrate all of our contributions, including that of our very large, diverse, and complex Asian diaspora."
--Michelle Li, founder of Very Asian Foundation & Reporter
"Tony DelaRosa is a voice of a generation. His bravery and expertise makes him a voice we all must take note and learn from. In the face of censorship, Teaching The Invisible Race is an urgent read and resource for anyone who cares about the fate of future generations."
--Tonya Mosley, Journalist, Cohost of NPR's "Fresh Air"
