Project Description From the Immigration Blog Hub:

"Students in Humanities created Google Sites, which are listed to the left, in the sidebar, based on a deceased or imaginary figure from the time period above. By studying immigration during this time period, as well as before and after the time period, students have a firm grasp on what it means to be an immigrant. Many of the characters researched are actual immigrants who went on in life to become famous or were members of the student's actual family. Other figures studied are fictional, created by the student based on a job one may have had at Ellis Island or politically during the time period."
