In my Honors/College American History class I had students do research about the experiences of immigrants to America that came during the "New" Immigration Pattern (1890-1917). They completed their research on Google Slides. When they were done with the research I gave them a choice to complete one of 3 projects.
I am a Social Science instructor at Aurora High School. I am currently teaching College/Honors American History and American History.
