If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
Power Point #1 - Industrialization & Urbanization - Impact of Immigration contains 14 editable slides.
Late 19th-century immigrants left their European homes to escape economic problems—scarce land, growing populations, and the decline of subsistence farming. They came to the United States in hope of economic gain. Most settled in the United States permanently, but others came only to amass some capital and then return home.
Record numbers of immigrants arrived in the United States, some 9 million from 1880 to 1900, and 13 million from 1900 to 1914. 1865 - 1885, immigrants arrived mainly from western Europe. The largest groups came from England, Ireland, Germany, and Scandinavia. 1885 - 1914, immigrants arrived mainly southern, eastern, and central Europe.
Many new immigrants were Slavs—Poles, Czechs, Russians, Ukrainians, Croatians—and others, including Jews, from the Austro-Hungarian and Russian empires. Among the new immigrants were also Greeks, Romanians, and Italians, mainly from southern Italy or Sicily.
