We The People: Migrant Waves in the Making of America

A two-week institute for 30 K-12 educators to study the formative influences of immigration on the United States through literature and history, with a focus on Arizona as a case study.

This new two-week institute will engage thirty K-12 professionals in exploring the influence of continuous waves of migration on the making of America. Through a case study of Arizona, the last continental state in the union, participants will examine stories and perspectives often left out of traditional narratives of U.S. history, which typically begin with the original thirteen colonies. The institute is based in interdisciplinary pedagogy grounded in the intersections across literature, historical records, social science research, artifacts, film and hands-on inquiry. Participants will gain knowledge and strategies to support their classroom teaching as they apply the inquiry strategies experienced in the case study to research migrant waves in their own states. This institute will be held in Worlds of Words, a Center of Global Literacies and Literatures. As the largest collection of global children’s literature in the U.S., the center provides rich literary and digital resources.
