Immigrant Studies: Investigating Our Heritage. User's Guide.
Wagner, Sherri; Wagner, Kenneth
Using a variety of learning activities and primary sources, elementary and secondary students investigate family and community history and ethnicity. The major goals of the units are to provide factual information about immigrants to America from about 1820 to 1920 and to assist students in investigating immigrant history and heritage in their families and communities. The user's guide provides introductory information on how to use the series and background information about immigration. A brief description is given on the influence of immigrants on America and is followed by a discussion on how and where students gather and interpret information. Content topics and processes used in the activities are described along with a scheme for recording and evaluating student progress. In addition to the user's guide, the series is composed of four units each for two levels--one for grades 4-8 and one for grades 9-12. These units, available only from the publisher, are classroom-oriented and emphasize gathering and interpreting information, valuing strategies, group sharing and discussion, activities for research projects and class field trips, and individual student research in family ancestry and community. To use the materials in the classroom, both the user's guide and units for either level are needed. (Author/JR)
