Help me give my students the gift of books to learn about how immigration changed the cultural fabric of America.
My learners are great! I teach in a predominantly Native American School in rural North Carolina. During Hurricane Matthew and Florence, as the world we knew turned to chaos and our school turned into a shelter, I witnessed community unification that came out in the form of selfless giving. Students who had their homes thrashed by the storm showed up at the shelter to help in any way they could. After a three week break to clean-up storm damage, my students' came in and pushed themselves hard to catch-up with the curriculum. Throughout the year, my students' pushed through shortened semesters and extra work with the character of pride and stride that I have always witnessed in my students'.
American Dream is at the heart of immigration in the 1850s. Immigrant story books will help expand my student's perspective about the heart wrenching stories that caused a mass exodus of Europe to seek the American Dream. The American Industrial Revolution along with the American System created a climate of financial and westward expansion in America. America was growing and moving. The American Dream was the hope of thousands of immigrants who risked everything to come to America.
Diaries, journals, and children's stories put a face to the mass immigration of the 1850s.
Children's literature will provide a springboard for students to dig deeper into the locations and cultural impact that the immigrants of the Irish Potato Famine had on America. The books will allow my students to dig into the causes and impact of the German immigrants who settled the west. Through learning and researching the life and times of immigrants, learners begin to personalize the learning experience.
