Spring 2018

Students in grade 9 worked on this exhibit in their Humanities, English and Art classes. Through this project students learned more about the immigration experience by discovering and writing about a person they know in the present or past who was an immigrant. In Humanities and English class students researched the immigrant’s story and developed a fictional narrative about their experience that is set in the actual timeframe of their immigration. In Art class students created a visual rendering of the immigrant. The exhibit focused on the values freedom and liberty as they relate to immigration by displaying the visual renderings of the immigrants, a paragraph about their immigration experience and a fictional reflection on the lesson learned or inspiration gained from the experience of immigration.
