The goal of the unit is to allow students to gain a more thorough understanding of this important event in American history through a rich variety of sources. The GIS activities provide access to census data from 1900 and 1930 that allow students to examine conclusions about the event by a variety of historians over the last 80 years in a manner not possible until recently. Sample lesson materials are included here, but teachers are encouraged to adapt the resources in the collection to best meet theirs and their students’ needs.
