My Students

I am the proud Social Studies teacher of a fantastic group of 162 students at a middle school in Milford, Michigan. I have always loved this age group as students have a passion for social issues and justice, that works so powerfully well in a history classroom.

In our classroom, we learn to be historians and immerse ourselves in early American history.

I make great efforts to create lessons that are rich in primary sources and peer discussion to teach the craft of history, as we become investigators into the past. I use a host of activities and simulations to make history truly come alive in my classroom.

My Project

This project is designed to help bring the late 1800's alive in my classroom, as we take a "journey" through Ellis Island. I have requested a replica woman's outfit for the time, as well as a doctor's coat for our "medical examiner". The Edison era light bulbs will also add a great deal of authenticity to the time.

The simulation is a student favorite and these items will help to enhance their experience.

Students will make different "stops" along the journey in order to get a sense of what many immigrants arriving through Ellis Island experienced. Students will be assigned the roles of actual people who went through the journey and will see the steps required for many immigrants who arrived through Ellis Island.
