      NYCity Lab: Immigration

      1 P Credit; $75 Educational Partner Fee (+ $45 ASPDP Fee)

      Day 1: Sunday, November 19, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m

      Immigration has always played a key role in the development of New York City, from its earliest days as New Amsterdam to today, where in 2017 approximately one third of New York’s population is foreign-born and the combination of immigrants and their American children comprise 55% of the city’s population.

      In NYCity Lab: Immigration, gain content knowledge of New York City’s rich history of immigration while planning activities for your classroom.

      In the course’s hands-on workshops, exhibition tours, and illustrated lectures, learn how to effectively analyze primary sources through visual inquiry, inference, and reading comprehension activities. Examine and decipher maps, charts, and census data to learn where immigrants have come from and where they have settled in New York City between 1609 and 2017, and compare and contrast this to data projecting immigration to the city through the year 2050. Read personal narratives and curate a mini-exhibit reflecting community ties for today’s five largest immigrant groups to NYC.

      This program is supported by The Thompson Family Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Additional support is provided by The Netherland-American Foundation.

      Registration for NYCity Lab: Immigration is a two-step process for those taking the course for P Credit. Educators interested in taking this course not for P Credit are welcome to do so and only need to complete Step 1. All teachers receive CTLE credit for the course hours.
