Becoming US: The Immigrant Experience through Primary Sources
Professional Development Program Type
Professional Development Program Audience
Becoming US: The Immigrant Experience through Primary Sources will engage thirty educators with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania's renowned archival collections to build comprehensive lesson plans around the central theme of immigration. Specifically, we will introduce a teaching model that allows students to pair historical research with family and community history, encouraging students to make connections between their past and the past. Immigration has played a critical role in the development of the United States as it exists today, and will continue to affect the country and its peoples' futures.
