•  The Constitutional Rights Foundation presents a new free resource for teachers Educating about Immigration is a rich, interactive web-based educational resource which provides classroom lessons, historical perspective, and current information about this important topic to students and teachers nationwide. The United States currently has the largest number of people born in another country in over 80 years. It is important for young people to know about the contributions of immigrants, the history of immigration, and about the issues being considered on a national level. Educating About Immigration allows students to form their own educated opinions and exert their voices as young citizens. The website contains lesson plans for teachers to bring balanced and thought-provoking discussions to the classroom, as well as professional development sessions designed to show how to effectively use the resources on the site and hands-on demonstrations of the available lessons and features.
