** Goals/Objectives of Unit:

1.      This section of the unit will attempt to provide a list of primary sources for secondary students. In this case the sources mentioned in the unit description below will allow the students to take an in-depth look at immigration to Cleveland from 1880 to the present.

2.      Using materials drawn from the diversity of human experience, students will analyze and interpret significant events, patterns and themes in the history of Ohio, the United States and the world.

3.      While role-playing (acting as actual federation members) and using their own creativeness, the students will be encouraged to promote peace and ethnic tolerance at all times when incorporating their gardens specifics.

4.      By becoming a mini-federation, tenth grade students will be demonstrating the ability to collect, organize, evaluate and synthesize information from multiple sources and draw conclusions from this information about social studies issues.
