Immigration Resources Online
Are you looking for resources about immigration? The theme of immigration runs through Northern Lights, from the fur traders in Chapter 5, the Swedish farmers in Chapter 7, the Finns to the Iron Range in Chapter 12 to current immigration trends in Chapter 20.
Here are a few places to find additional online resources about this topic.
The University of Minnesota’s Immigration History Research Center launched the #ImmigrationSyllabus with resources to “help the public understand the deep historical roots of today’s immigration debates.” While many of the resources are not at a 6th grade reading level, there are some excellent interactive web resources and primary source depositories listed in the Multimedia sections.
