Essay Task: Write a five paragraph essay explaining if Trump’s changes to U.S. immigration policy will be good or bad for the U.S. I provide my ninth graders with a basic outline as a support. Older students or students in honors classes should be able to organize their essay on their own. There is a background essay (helpful in writing the introduction) and three documents which were found in lessons 1-3. There are also additional resources that can be used to support their argument. Students should be encouraged to pull evidence from any of the activities completed throughout the unit.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
By the end of grade 10, read and comprehend history/social studies texts in the grades 9–10 text complexity band independently and proficiently.
Compare and contrast treatments of the same topic in several primary and secondary sources.
Assess the extent to which the reasoning and evidence in a text support the author’s claims.
Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources, attending to such features as the date and origin of the information.
