This lesson covers immigration in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, 1880s-1920s. Students will analyze primary and secondary sources to determine the push and pull factors that led immigrants to come to the U.S. by the millions in the 1880s-1920s, and the immigrant experience upon arriving in the United States, including the impact of Nativism and settlement house assimilation programs.
After analyzing and discussing the sources, students will choose between the following—A) assume the role of a federally-commissioned immigration reporter and write a account OR B) create a comic strip that summarizes the (1) reasons for immigration, (2) immigrant arrival and settlement patterns, and (3) treatment/attitudes toward immigrants.
Includes: bellwork, note-taking sheet, powerpoint, secondary sources, primary sources, guiding questions, and two assessment options with rubrics.
