Students read a brief overview of nativism in the Roaring 20s, the Immigration Act of 1917, the Emergency Quota Act of 1921, and the Immigration Act of 1924 and answer 5 questions. They then analyze 8 images by responding to 5 prompts and completing a creative task for each image. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate!
Sample questions and image analysis prompts include:
--Identify 4 countries included in the Asiatic Barred Zone from the Immigration Act of 1917.
--Why might immigration acts have changed so frequently during this time period?
--Identify the point of view AND message of each political cartoon.
--Two images are about the Chinese Exclusion Act. Discuss how they still reflect nativism from the 1920s.
