We are pleased to announce the release of “United States Immigrant Respond to Significant Late 19th-Early 20th Century Events” lesson plan! These educational materials have been created to engage students with digitized foreign language newspapers. Students will learn how to search the Chronicling America website to find evidence of the past, detect bias in newspaper articles, and gain an appreciation regarding the lives of immigrants during the first part of the 20th century.

To access the lesson, visit the Outreach page and click on Lesson Plans.
