Fall High School Retreat

“Immigration: An American Snapshot”
Thursday, October 19 – Saturday, October 21, 2017
Camp Wise – 13164 Taylor Wells Road, Chardon, OH 44024

The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio’s Annual Fall High School Retreat is a unique three-day opportunity for students and educators of all backgrounds, throughout Northeast Ohio, to come together to explore topics of social justice and diversity.

This year’s theme “Immigration: An American Snapshot” will help students explore the topic of immigration and its impact on contemporary society. Through the use of historical and individual accounts of previous generations, the struggles they endured, and successes they achieved, students will develop an understanding of how immigration has come to influence the cultural, economic, political and social landscape of our nation.

Students will:

  • Identify the causes of immigration, in particular the primary “push” & “pull” factors
  • Describe the impact (culturally, economically, politically, socially) that immigrants have had in shaping society
  • Analyze the cycles of immigration throughout modern US history (1600 to present)
  • Explain the “Americanization Process” that immigrants face when entering the United States (past & present)
  • Compare the arguments for & against immigration as it relates to today’s social climate

Please join us in our efforts to educate and impact the community.
