Essential Question: Did the Industrial Revolution create more problems than it solved?
Agenda: As we continue our study of American cities, we turn our attention to the local neighborhoods called Chinatowns. Today we begin a project that explores the reasons behind why these neighborhoods exist. Yesterday we looked at an article written in 1879 about the Chinese in America. Today we review that article and also look at the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act.
Homework: Students should design their covers neatly and artistically, titling their books, Why Do So Many Large American Cities Have a Chinatown?
