Why Lesson Planet?
ELLs are introduced to the experiences of Filipino immigrants to the United States. As a class, they discuss the various waves of immigration to the United States and state the reasons why they would leave the Philippines. They compare timelines of Filipino and Puerto Rican immigration and consider two case studies of Filipino immigrants. To end the lesson, they research their own family's immigration story. Some materials are missing in this resource, so it will needed to be supplemented.
