1914 Immigrant America With American Girl Rebecca

Olivia Lewis
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(55)
In this one-time course, students will learn about US history through American Girl doll Rebecca Rubin, discussing the experiences of immigrants in the US in the early 1900s.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will leave the course understanding the immigrant experience in urban America, why the early 1900s were the largest period of immigration in the US, and what constraints immigrants faced in the US, in light of the beginning of WWI. 
In my work for my history major, I have taken multiple college-level courses covering these history topics, as well as courses in the experiences of marginalized groups that have provided me with an understanding of these groups' experiences and the historical context for American discirminatory action and thoughts. I am here to provide a historical outlook and provide insight into what was happening in history, but am not here to provide an in-depth look at discrimination or the experiences of marginalized groups. 
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
I will supply a fill-in-the-blank style handout ahead of class. This handout will feature blanks that can be found throughout the PowerPoint and is a great tool to help students remain engaged throughout the lesson as well as retain information to be shared with parents, friends, and family after the course. The worksheet will be emailed the day before class, please look it over and use your discretion to decide if it would be a helpful tool for your student. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This course will discuss moments in history that saw significant Xenophobia, nativism, and racism, as well as the beginning of WWI. This course will not go into any details of the war or battles, but the topics covered can be heavy. The course will maintain a light and educational environment, but students may need more at home discussion about the discrimination discussed in the course. 
The class will use a PowerPoint and worksheet, both created by myself, based on the American Girl Rebecca books, and my university coursework with twentieth-century US historians.
