What are the reasons that large groups of people have found themselves moving from place to place? What effects does this movement have? And most importantly, how can such a fluid and nebulous concept be presented in a classroom in an easy-to-follow manner with clear lesson objectives and outcomes? Regional case studies were chosen to address these, and other, essential questions. Where possible, we have used primary source documents to present the information in each case study. There’s even a PowerPoint presentation to help you get started! The new, revised edition incorporates suggestions from educators based on classroom use, assessment tools, and incorporates the revised TEKS for social studies.
