Overview

Welcome to Mr. Augustin’s Core Class exhibit on immigration.  For the past two months, the Core class has been learning about immigration – both legal and undocumented.  The students have analyzed statistical data from 1850 to current day.  They have investigated the push and pull factors as to why people migrate in the first place.  They have learned how challenging the process is to become a citizen legally.  They have interpreted political cartoons and commentary to realize the myriad of viewpoints that exist on the various issues of immigration – from border security to terrorism to the founding principles of America.

 As a culminating assessment, the students identified various work products that could effectively synthesize all of the hard work and learning they completed.  These project ideas came from them and they chose what to work on.  Some projects were done individually and others were a group effort.  Again, this choice was left up to them.

I hope you find their work interesting and thought provoking.

 -Mr. Augustin
