Cambodia

Temple at Angkor

 

Introduction

Long an immigrant city, Lowell, Massachusetts, is well known as the home of one of the largest Cambodian populations in the United States. Thanks to a grant from the Theodore Edson Parker Foundation, ten K-12 Lowell teachers in partnership with Primary Source created more than twenty interdisciplinary lessons on Cambodia to better engage their students and generate understanding of their histories and cultures. The lessons range from daily life in a Cambodian village to literature and history lessons around Luong Ung's memoir First They Killed My Father, to lessons helping newly arrived Cambodians adjust to school life in the United States. Each of the lessons incorporates literacy objectives in addition to content objectives. The lessons provide global models for curriculum writing about any culture.
