Fourth Grade Historians: A Thematic Approach to Immigration
Henry, Elizabeth Egan
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v20 n3 p4-7 Jan-Feb 2008
In this article, the author relates how she realized that she needed to differentiate her approach in teaching the subject of immigration to her students. She realized that most of her students find themselves far removed from the experiences of immigrants. The unit that she developed at her class in Trinity has much in common with the instructional experiences typical at the elementary level. Through a thematic approach, the author aims that students would make historical connections across time and space to the current debate surrounding immigration. (Contains 9 notes.)
