Blog: Why Teach Immigrant History?
Exploring Language Communities of the U.S.
More than a fifth of Americans speak a language other than English at home. Many of these are immigrants; some have lived in the U.S. for generations. Immigration history and the history of immigrants impacts them all.
The Accessing Inquiry program taps high student interest in the history of immigration and of migrations within the U.S. as well as touching on the little studied history of these communities that speak languages other than English. Explore insights and extensive resources on this exciting and vital topic starting with this week’s blog post.
