Join me as we adventure through NY Harbor to Ellis Island, home of the National Immigration Museum. Students will learn about the history of Ellis Island, its significance, as well as the role of immigration during its years of operation. Some topics of discussion will include: What is an Immigrant? Students will explore how voluntary and involuntary immigration shaped the American landscape. Students will look at diverse groups, focusing on those that passed through Ellis Island. Waves...
I have had the good fortune of being able to pass Ellis Island in daily commutes, visit her halls that echo with the voices of the past, as well as be a descendant of an immigrant who not only passed through her doors, but who also worked there for many years thereafter. Ellis Island is very much a part of who I am, inasmuch as it is for so many other Americans. Later, during my graduate studies, I concentrated on adolescent education in Social Studies, which brought me right back to Ellis Island, as I sought ways to incorporate this local resource into Place Based Educational experiences for students.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be provided with numerous resources from the Ellis Island Foundation/ Museum, Scholastic, The New York Times Archives Further source material comes from the Library of Congress, American Passage, and PBS.
