Web Site of the Week: Immigrant Heritage Month
June is Immigrant Heritage Month, and this site is alive with stories of America’s diverse citizenry. Readers may view uploaded videos, tweets and retweets, photographs, inspiring quotes, and, above all, the many, many stories of those who have come to America looking for a better life. Some of the stories, such as a Vietnamese man’s first encounter with snow, are humorous; others, such as children of immigrants recalling their parents sacrifices, are touching. Overall, the site has an almost overwhelming ability to convey the complexity and depth of the American immigrant experience, in many of its varied forms. Educators may find the site useful during lesson plans on immigration and the diversity of the United States, while other readers may just enjoy the wealth of narrative available here. [CNH]
