Library of Congress. “Immigration and Migration: Today and During the Great Depression”

Eight lesson plans at this site). Is there a novel in every person? Are there stories that have never been told because they seemed unimportant? What is the value of the lives of people who will never be famous or have their biographies written? Students address these questions through activities using oral history methods and investigating life in the 1930s. They compare immigration/migration experiences of their families to those of people living through the Great Depression using interviews with parents, and photographs, films, and documents from the Library of Congress and other sources.
