The Great Migration - Interactive Source Based Discovery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Teaching history is always a challenge to middle school students as they find it difficult to connect to the people with their strange clothes and stiff black and white photos. This session will walk you through a series of activities of the Great Migration to Canada where students take on the roles of people and groups who came to Canada at this time. In this unit students are given the opportunity to experience what a migrant from Great Britain and Ireland would have gone through during their journey. This allows them to connect to and experience the struggles, frustrations, misunderstandings, prejudices, etc of this time. Unlike traditional lessons where students take notes and listen to lectures, students are able to learn through interactive source based discovery and this allows for those with different strengths and abilities to access the content in a variety of ways and be a positive contributing member of their class. All student will be able to find success and demonstrate work to their potential. The assessment from this simulation covers many humanities core outcomes. You will walk away with the set of lessons, activities, assessment/projects and more!
