The unit is going to be taught to students of various backgrounds and color, in other words students of diverse population. The grade level would be 9 and10. The unit will cover a little on slave trade to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The idea of the unit is to allow the students to understand:
· What kind of immigration policy exists?
· Who are the major power brokers?
· How policies were shifted?
· What constituted protections are in place for African immigrants?
· Why African-Americans failed to make headway?
· What happened after the initial immigrant niche was put into place?
· How the immigration system works?
This unit is being written to be taught all year round. The unit will open with a lesson on how to read a map of Africa, Asia, and the western hemisphere and how people migrated to America. Lesson two will entail writing an essay on Africa and America, while lesson three will require a hands-on teaching method.
(Recommended for History, grades 11-12.)
