Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

Students examine primary sources to determine their purpose and connection to the government policy of the time. They propose reasons why stereotypes were used in media of the past, clarify the publication’s purpose, identify bias and put the information in an historical context. They evaluate evidence to draw conclusions. The students create narrative accounts based on information from a range of sources and refer to real characters and events. Students work in groups to generate a timeline of government migration polices during the 20th century and their relationship to world events.
The key concepts addressed in this lesson are sources, cause and effect, perspectives and empathy.
