What: Anti-Defamation League Unit. This lesson helps students to differentiate the myths from the facts about immigrants and immigration. Students participate in a quiz and analyze a political cartoon in order to better understand how stereotypes and scapegoating are used to marginalize immigrants. They then hear immigrant testimonials, view a video clip and investigate scenarios in order to increase their empathy and develop their skills as allies to targeted individuals and communities.
Target grade level: 6-8
