Immigration: What’s Your Story? Grants

The Chinese Historical and Cultural Project (CHCP) provides grant opportunities to teachers who are interested in having their classes attend History San Jose (HSJ)‘s Immigration: What’s Your Story? program. This HSJ program provides field trips to History Park San Jose (which includes a visit to the Chinese American Historical Museum) for students in grades 5-6 in Santa Clara County, California. The program looks into the universal issues of discrimination, cultural identity, and policies surrounding immigration, allowing students to:

  1. step into the shoes of another person through perspective-taking activities
  2. discover the challenges and triumphs of real people risking everything to start a new life in California, from lands far away and just across the border
  3. investigate the commonalities and differences between immigrant groups from the past and today
