Immigration, "Any Small Goodness," and Integrated Social Studies
Bauml, Michelle; Field, Sherry L.; Ledbetter, Mary
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v26 n1 p17-21 Sep-Oct 2013
Mary Ledbetter's fifth grade students at the University of Texas Elementary School know immigration well. Some of them are recent immigrants from Mexico, or they have family members who are. Several of Mary's students are first or second generation Americans. For Mary, immigration is one of the most important units she teaches, one that integrates several disciplines. When teaching about immigration, her goal is to have students understand that immigration is a constantly evolving issue, not just something we learn about in past tense.
