This online course will harness current events to deepen understanding of immigration across American history, from the founding of the nation through today.
Learn to engage diverse students–English Learners, students of color, urban youth, and students from disrupted backgrounds. Immigration has a strong appeal for its power to help these students to connect their experiences and communities to the core curriculum. The topic also captures students' desire to explore issues of social justice.
