Few issues have demonstrated such continuity and relevance throughout American history as immigration. This assignment dives into the fears, concerns, and reactions of 1920's America to the wave of European immigrants arriving after WWI. The assignment has a lot of information but is broken into small parts to keep students' attention and focus. First they read about the Red Scare and Quota Acts, then analyze a Congressman's speech protesting the Quota Acts (A GREAT prompt for discussions on modern immigration issues). Finally they learn about the Palmer Raids and Sacco and Vanzetti Trial/Execution, prime examples hysteria over immigration.
