Committee of 100
Research Statement:
Committee of 100 unveiled a state-by-state analysis of the prevalence of existing policy and potential legislation requiring the teaching of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) history and contributions in K-12 social studies curriculum. Committee of 100 researchers analyzed the laws, regulations, bills, and publicly available curriculum standards of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to determine which states have existing K-12 AAPI or ethnic studies curriculum requirements or legislative action that would enact such requirements.
Design Objectives:
To design a static and printable map that presents C100’s research on K-12 Asian American and Pacific Islander and Ethnic Studies in the United States.
Initially we just wanted one map on a single page that can present all the research data, but soon I found out that approach could lead to a chaotic map, so instead we have an overview page followed with four individual maps that demonstrate the data for each broad category.
Above is my first rough sketch of the infographic. As you can see, trying to jam all the information on one page may not be ideal.
Above are the potential color schemes for the map. The C100 brand colors are also considered.
And here’s the completed product! As the regulations and laws change over time, the info will be updated as well. For the most up-to-date and complete map in PDF, please visit C100’s website.
