PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Powerpoint, graphic organisers, information texts and full lesson plan.

This lesson begins with the reasons for large scale immigration into the USA from Central and South American countries in the mid 19th century and looks at the situation for Hispanic Americans in the USA at that time. There is a particular focus on Mexican Americans and the Chicano American campaigns as the largest minority group.

The lesson begins by discussing what is meant by the term Hispanic and where culturally do hispanic Americans come from with a map activity. Students sift and sort Push and Pull factors on immigration and categorise them into political, social and economic factors.

The song 'I like to be in America' from West Side Story is used as hook to consider positive and negative experiences for immigrants into America in the 1950 and how these experiences framed the civil rights movement into the 1960s and 1970s. (the link to a version on Youtube is on the powerpoint slide)

The class finds more information around the room and summarises it with a graphic organiser before assessing the successes and limitations of the campaign into the 1970s. They complete a 15 minute written essay using their notes and the mark scheme.

Lesson contains:
21 page animated and annotated PowerPoint
Differentiated information texts
2 graphic organisers
'I like to be in America' lyrics - annotated with examples.
Full lesson plan.

I hope you find this useful.
Thanks for having a look!
