Teacher Review For Zoom In

Outstanding lesson about the conflicting perspectives regarding early 20th century immigration--based on a political cartoon, and several other documents from the era.

How I Use It
This is my second year using the engaging lessons provided by Zoom In. Their lessons engage students with thought provoking lesson questions, accompanied by primary and secondary source documents that hook students from the start. Teachers can easily see student progress in the Zoom In lesson module, and can provide feedback within the structure as well.
My Take
My students are engaged and interested in the content, thanks to the outstanding choice of documents. The Zoom In lessons promote cross-curricular collaboration--since many of the lessons explore multiple topics, time periods, and skills. I am looking forward to providing my students with more of the Zoom In lessons throughout the school year!
