Tenements and Immigration Primary Source Set

Tenements and Immigration Primary Source Set

Overview

The primary sources in this set can be used for inquiry-based learning exercises and projects. Each document falls under the umbrella topic of tenements and immigration, and students are encouraged to annotate in the margins in order to support the development of document analysis and critical thinking skills. Suggested projects that make use of this set’s primary sources are also included for the educator as a springboard for research-based projects.
