Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers on the history of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century immigration at Ellis Island.

Save Ellis Island, Inc. (SEI), a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and the National Park Service designated fundraising and programmatic partner for the restoration and reuse of the thirty un-restored buildings on Ellis Island, proposes to convene two one-week workshops for teachers investigating the impact of immigration to America in the early decades of the twentieth century. Using the power of place on Ellis Island, and the resources available there, the workshops will examine the implications of federal immigration legislation at the turn of the twentieth century in light of economic, social and political thought of the time. The workshop will include presentations by scholars, tours of Ellis Island's hospitals and Immigration Museum, field trips and opportunities for teachers to conduct research in primary source materials and oral histories in the Ellis Island library.
