PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Impact of Mexican Immigration Activity (U.S. History)

Your secondary students will be able to understand the impact of Mexican Immigration in the United States from the turn of the century until 2000. This activity follows the GRR (Gradual Release of Responsibility) model. First, the entire class, together, will read about immigration from 1900-1941 and complete the corresponding graphic organizer describing the “push” and “pull” factors that persuaded many Mexicans to want to leave Mexico and immigrate to the United States. Students will then work in pairs and complete the second reading and graphic organizer that discusses the time period from 1942-1965, especially the Bracero Program. They will then complete the last graphic organizer individually reading about the time period 1966-1999. The presentation includes chart analysis, song analysis, “Deporte’” and wrap-up questions. As a “ticket-out-the-door” students are to write a double-chunk paragraph to show their comprehension. A paragraph frame is included to help struggling writers.
