How I Use It
We use Ancestryk12 to look at how immigration has changed over time, how to use primary sources, what their immigration story is, and to think about ways to improve our own immigration policy.
My Take
The students love it because it is about their family history. I love it because they are working with primary sources and persevering through road blocks.
