About This Lesson

Although the period of severe economic upheaval known as the Great Depression was a time when the United States focused inward, this crisis had implications for immigrants and immigration that are worth exploring, especially as a means to make the past century’s history more relevant for students today. The two lesson plans in this resource, “The Deportation of Mexicans and Mexican Americans, Words Matter” and “Dust Bowl Migration,” are designed to be flexible and adaptable based on the needs of your class, including by offering options such as multiple leveled texts and by supporting both in-person and online class activities. Each lesson can stand alone in one or two class periods, or they could be used together as fits into the existing scope and sequence of the course
