We are pleased to announce the release of “The 1920s Ku Klux Klan from an Immigrant Perspective” unit 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 analyze the activities of the 1920s Ku Klux Klan in a historical context and from an immigrant perspective.

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