This lesson teaches students about the historical reasons that led to the Chinese Exclusion Act, the details relating to the act, and the impact of that act.
With this activity, I’ve found that information requires whole-class instruction. There are many complicated reasons why the Chinese Exclusion Act came to pass, however, the overarching reason was racism. I’m found that whole group instruction is best for these types of conversations in order to clear up misconceptions as they come up. Students will work through a Google Slides presentation with the teacher and answer some comprehension questions to check understanding. They will also analyze a political cartoon discussing the act. You can view more in the preview here.
