This fantastic resource on Mexican Repatriation during the Great Depression is a powerful lesson on an often overlooked topic in American History!
In the early years of the Great Depression, between 400,000 and 2,000,000 people were deported to Mexico and it is estimated 60% were American citizens.
This full lesson includes an introductory reading on the background and why the deportations were dubbed "repatriation" plus an essential question that students must answer based on evidence.
There are then 8 primary and secondary sources with photos, newspaper articles, and quotes to help students understand the scope of the repatriation, why is was controversial, and whether or not it was legal. A analysis worksheet is includes for students to take notes on as they move through the sources either in groups or as stations. An editable Google Doc version is also included if you prefer your students to complete it online.
Also included is an answer key and teacher directions page with differentiation strategies and links to video and online sources to supplement the lesson.
This resource can also be purchased as part of my 20's and Great Depression Unit plan Bundle
