Alyssa Carlson’s Seminar Reflection on the CAAM Blog

Alyssa Carlson’s Seminar Reflection on the CAAM Blog

Seminar participant Alyssa Carlson is the last, but certainly not least, to write a seminar reflection for on the CAAM blog. In her post, Alyssa reflects on her experience teaching Hmong ELL students in the Twin Cities, her experience during the seminar, as well as her thoughts before, during, and after the seminar on incorporating Asian American film and literature in her classroom.

The Hmong community is such a big, vital part of the Twin Cities—I was really anxious to talk about some ideas that were more theoretical and big-picture than the more immediate ones we discuss at school.

Be sure to check out Alyssa’s full post on the CAAM blog, along with the double post by co-director Jennifer Hayashida and participant Elly Smith, and the posts by participants Rhonda Anderson and Holly Takashima.
