Description

Overview:
In this lesson, students will listen to a read aloud book called Coming to America by Betsy Maestro. The class will discuss why the people in the story decided to immigrate to the United States and how they acclimated themselves within the culture. In groups of four, students will take a virtual field trip to Ellis Island. They will compare and contrast immigration from a long time ago to the present. The teacher will assess student achievement by having students fill in the last portion of the Know, Want to Know, and Learned chart (see attachment). In addition, the students will write a summative paper that includes a reflection on what the students learned throughout the unit using a “Summative Reflection Rubric” (see attachment). This lesson was developed by Cheryl Riffe as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
