Undocumented Immigrants

This Undocumented Immigrants lesson plan also includes:

Stay or go? As part of a study of immigration and human rights, class members listen to the stories of several immigrants and must decide if the story was their own if they would stay in the United States as an undocumented immigrant or return to their native country. In addition, groups examine case studies of immigrants and identify the human rights that were fulfilled or violated.
