The 1990 Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, develops and implements programs to promote U.S. – China cross-cultural understanding and the Asian American experience. This library also contains references to selected educational resources available on the Internet.
We welcome anyone interested in learning more about the fascinating and complex stories about the Asian experience in America, what life is really like in China today, and the multi-faceted and nuanced relationship between the United States and China. Although anyone can read and learn from these sources, we have, in particular, also provided materials that are suitable for teaching middle and high school students.
This site is not a comprehensive source, but includes selected media that we feel best explain the subjects at hand and are especially suitable for students and young adults. It also includes all the lectures and lesson plans from our annual China Now for Teachers Program for middle school and high school teachers for the past eight years.
