By the Numbers: Evaluating Global Migration and Human Rights Changes for American Immigrants

Amanda Lam, Math, McClintock Middle School

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


Students will investigate patterns of association in bivariate data relating to global migration and displacement.  They will choose one country of major migration to the United States after 1945.  Using the United Nation’s Declaration of Human Rights as a rubric for evaluation, students will give a before and after “score” to determine to what extent human rights are stronger, weaker, or unchanged for that specific minority group in the U.S.
