In this highly-engaging and Common Core focused activity, students understand the role of the Chinese Exclusion Act (affecting Chinese immigrants), the Dawes Act (affecting Native Americans), and the words of Emma Lazarus in "The New Colossus" that rest upon the Statue of Liberty!

Students analyze the text from the Chinese Exclusion Act and the Dawes Act, then consider "What Would Emma Lazarus Say" in response to both acts of Congress. After critiquing both laws, students write a letter from the perspective of Emma Lazarus to President Grover Cleveland where students interpret the meaning behind "The New Colossus" and the impact the Chinese Exclusion Act and the Dawes Act has on Civil Rights and Immigration!

A key is included! Enjoy!
