New on-line exhibit of materials documenting integration of immigrants in their new communities has been created as part of the IHRC's participation in a workshop for educators to be held at the University of Minnesota.
In a collaborative effort of the IHRC, Institute for Global Studies and the International Institute of Minnesota, the workshop will provide training for a group of Minnesota K-12 teachers on the Twin Cities campus.
The materials have been organized thematically in order to initiate student discussion related to Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards and Benchmarks that address the study of migration. By incorporating these archival records into lesson plans, students will be able to think critically about the immigrant experience. Furthermore, working directly with primary sources will enable students to practice and develop research skills that will become increasingly important as they progress in their studies.
