Student Inquiry Questions:
How was the experience of immigration for those who came to the US from foreign countries similar or different than for those who migrated within the US?


Following a PowerPoint presentation featuring brief biographies of Ralph Moody and Mary Antin, as well a look at the primary sources that will be used for the lesson, you will be given selected readings from the memoirs and assigned a specific research task. As a group you will complete your research task and when complete, you will share it with the class.

Note: This lesson is designed to follow a 3 day project on Chinese immigration, which will cover some immigration details not included in this lesson. Additional discussion may be desired before commencing with this lesson.
