Matthew Mauk -- Immigration during 19th Century
Oshkosh Traeger Middle School teacher Matt Mauk will develop a lesson unit that encourage 8th grade students to compare and contrast immigration during the 19th century with modern day immigration; they may find that many of the push and pull factors and attitudes toward immigration are similiar. Students often feel that freedom to provide for one’s family or freedom to live under democratic principles is an exclusively American right. Student’s inability to objectively examine immigration is due, in part, to the fact that they fail to see the issue in historical context.
