This is a brief 2-page biography of Ah Quin, a Chinese immigrant to California in the mid-1800s who was an important person in the San Diego community. It includes some context for the Chinese in California taken from Ronald Takaki's "A Distant Mirror." I have students read the biography and write four or five "tweets" from the life of Ah Quin (as if they were him). I've included a page of graphic for the tweets.
Note: The preview images are misleading. The last page contains five tweet graphics (not four).
