Irish Immigration in 1800s “Was the Treatment of Irish Immigrants as Second-Class Citizens Justified?”

This Irish Immigration in 1800s “Was the Treatment of Irish Immigrants as Second-Class Citizens Justified?” lesson plan also includes:

Here are a few words you don't hear fifth and sixth graders saying every day; nativism, xenophobia, subversive, and chauvinistic nationalism. As they gather around for a rousing discussion about the treatment of Irish immigrants, they'll use these big words to define their understanding of the topic. After discussion, they'll construct well-thought-out position papers. There is a quite extensive reading passage included along with a discussion rubric, and a worksheet. Please note: The text may be somewhat advanced for some learners and may need to be replaced with a more developmentally appropriate one.
