Do you know who Wong Kim Ark is and why he is a pivotal figure in American history? Have your students learned about the LA walkouts and the significance to Latino students today? How did the Immigration Act of 1965 change the pattern of immigration to the United States within a decade? This session will bring voice to the missing migration narratives that are part of American History not often or not taught at all in the classroom. Re-Imagining Migration shares the importance of highlighting these narratives with a focus on our Learning Arc, pedagogical approach and materials that can be utilized in the classroom.
