Conditions of Use
Yesterday my class and I did the immigration simulation. I got nervous because the people that keep you in the boat were mean. They would ask what your name was, and if it was a weird name they would be say that’s a stupid name. I was the second to the last person off the boat. When I got to the first station they asked me a couple questions and then they sent me to the deportation station. But when they filled out my deportation form halfway they sent me to the appeal station. I was Polish and the people at the appeal station said they like Polish people so they sent me to the loyalty oath station. Then they put me aside, I had to give them 20$, then I did the oath, and then I became a citizen of the United States of America.

Ethan - You did some high quality work during this activity. Your letter, your blog, and your performance during the simulation show that you put a lot of thought into the concept of immigration. Even though your experience with Ellis Island wasn't ideal, our discussion last Wednesday shows me that you learned a lot from it. I really enjoyed working with you on this project. Thank you again. Good luck with the rest of the school year and next year!
