Using a UDL approach, students will build background on the history of immigration to the United States through multiple means of representation. In order to fully engage students and make learning more personally relevant, students will be asked to reflect on their own experiences as first and second immigrants to this country. Multiple means of expression will be used to drive the culminating performance assessment where student are asked to create a multimedia presentation to contribute to a local, national and international dialogue bringing awareness to present immigration policies. 11
  2. 2. File name: Bellino_Project2_Moedl_Lesson.doc Version: 0.1 Date: 5/10/2010 Page 2 of 10 2 Standards and Goals 2.1 Goals • Students will understand the different reasons people move to the U.S. • Students will understand how immigration has changed over time. • Students will understand the effects of immigration on the U.S. and how those ef- fects have changed over time. Students should be able to think critically about how to contribute to a global dialogue about immigration issues drawing upon historical evidence and perspectives. Students will be asked to draw upon classroom discussions and personal research using print resources, websites, interactive simulations, videos and other multimedia to compare an historical narrative about immigration to the U.S. with their own experience. The culminating performance of understanding allows students to select a project in which to demonstrate their understanding that will be hosted on the class website and shared with members of the school and local community. Projects may include an essay, short story, video, ppt presentation, radio broadcast, timeline, or multimedia mash-up. 2.2 National Standards NSS-USH.5-12.6 Understands massive immigration after 1870 and how new social patterns, conflicts, and ideas of national unity developed amid growing cultural diversity NSS-USH.9-12.10 Understands economic, social, and cultural developments in contemporary United States. 2.3 AZ State Standards Strand 1. Concept 3. PO3. Describe the reasons (e.g., religious freedom, desire for land, economic opportunity, a new life) for colonization of America. Strand 1. Concept 1. PO4. Locate information using both primary and secondary sources. Strand 3. Concept 4. PO1. Describe ways an individual can contribute to a school or community Strand 1. Concept 10. PO 2. Discuss the connections between current and historical 22

History is often presented with a particular bias or viewpoint with little connection to current events. Assessment is often delivered through project-based performance assessment or standardized tests. 4 Challenges/Barriers Many children are often left out of the equation when history is taught using the traditional approach. By committing to using a basal textbook to deliver instruction children are not provided with multiple means of representation. The basal textbook also threatens the ability to provide multiple means of engagement by limiting the voices of history to one publisher or author. In order for children to be motivated and engaged, social studies curriculum must ensure that learning is personal and relevant. Social studies assessment, at the elementary level, generally provides options for expression through the use of project-based performance assessments. The challenge with traditional approaches to project-based assessments is making them more current by employing new technologies to support 21st century learning. 33

Have any of these reasons changed over time? Discussion • Introduce the big question and understanding goals for the unit • Have students jot down their initial responses to the big question in their online journal • Have students share their responses with the class and capture in the class journal • Introduce final performance of understanding project Background Video • Watch the background video as a class • Respond to the video using a class concept map that will be posted to the class journal Small Group Discussion • Have students work in pairs to respond to the following prompts o What do you think would be the biggest challenge if you moved to a new country? o Where do you think most immigrants come from now? o What do you think is the main reason that people have moved to the United States for so many years? • Have pairs share their work with the group and capture their responses in the class journal 5.2 Engage • Ask student’s to think about some of the reasons their family moved to the U.S. o Using an image, drawing, recording or text have students post their thoughts online • Use Scholastic’s website “Immigration Stories of Yesterday and Today” to introduce students to three recent immigrant children to the U.S. 44
