Description

This workshop will take a deep dive into one of the five themes of geography: movement. In this day-long professional development we will examine the history of how and why people moved into and out of our state. From the first Native Americans to the modern immigration debate, we will take a close look at how teachers can teach topics of immigration through historical themes and see that the current debates are not new but are struggles that generations of Tennesseans in the past have struggled with.
