In this Common-Core aligned lesson plan, students will randomly be assigned an immigration status: "citizen", "lawful permanent resident", "undocumented", or “DACA recipient.” After a brief discussion of what the terms mean, students will take a step backwards or forwards in response to a series of stated ‘benefits’ and ‘limitations’ conferred by the assigned fictional immigration status. Students will then discuss what it felt like to be moving backwards or forwards as well as how these barriers affect all groups. Extensions and adaptations provided for learners at multiple levels.
