Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project--Migration Unit.
Minneapolis Public Schools, Minn. Dept. of Intergroup Education.
The student booklet presents short chapters illustrating the migration unit of the Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project for secondary schools. Sixteen brief chapters describe migration, immigration, and emigration in the United States. The first six chapters offer first person accounts of immigrants from Norway, Korea, Egypt, Hitler's Germany, and Yugoslavia. These are of both early and contemporary immigrants. Other chapters present brief histories of immigration in the United States including a discussion of laws and quotas, and the Chinese, Mexican, and Finnish migrations. One chapter describes the slave trade and offers a related simulation game, while another relates the story of the removal of the Choctaw Indians from Mississippi to Indian Territory. The final two chapters discuss the contemporary movement of blacks to Atlanta, Georgia and patterns of moving in the United States today. (CK)
