Immigration in a Changing World: Identity, Citizenship, and Belonging

What does it mean to be an American? Who may become an American? In this seminar, participants will explore these questions as they consider the history and contemporary realities of immigration in the United States. We will consider how the choices and actions of immigrants have shaped ideas about freedom and democracy and influenced what it means to be American.

 

Join the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation and Facing History and Ourselves for an interactive workshop where you will explore the history and contemporary realities of human migration, movement, and related policies in the United States. On the second day, we will visit the Angel Island Immigration Station to explore the experiences of immigrants from the 1800s to the present and raise questions about tensions between race, democracy, and citizenship.   

 

This workshop is appropriate for humanities, social science, history, and English language arts educators teaching grades 4-12.

 

Participants will:

  1. Learn strategies for teaching current events through history

  2. Learn ways to create a safe space for productive classroom discussions around current events

  3. Be introduced to classroom ready contemporary, historical, and literary resources on issues of identity and belonging, choices in history, and civic participation
