Today we will begin studying the great wave of immigration from Europe to the United States in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. This was one of the largest mass movement of people from one place to another in the history of the world. You will learn why these people left their homelands in Europe to come to American. You will also learn about the conditions they faced on the journey and how the final decision was made that would either allow them into this country or send them back.

In class, we will be watching a 28 minute video on the history of Ellis Island during the era of Immigration. As we watch the video, you will be answering these questions: Ellis Island Video Questions (Due on SpringBoard by the end of Friday). If you miss class on Friday, you can view the video on your own here (and complete the questions):


You also have a new Guided Reading on Immigration: Sec. 1 – New Immigrants (Guided Reading) (Due on Tuesday September 20 on SpringBoard…by 11:59 PM).
