Lessons on Immigration: Help From the New York Times
Do you want to involve your students in a discussion about Arizona's controversial new immigration law but don't know how to approach the topic? Don't know where to find some examples of interviews with today's immigrants? Through its "Learning Network," the New York Times provides resources to address those questions. This week's post makes available at your fingertips a collection of 40 lesson plans and background information to support teachers in carrying out lessons about immigration in the United States.
The resources include some really cool tools. For example, you can use the newspaper's "immigration explorer" tool to plug in a group of immigrants and see how they settled across the United States.
