Lesson Plans for teaching about Franco Americans

French Canadian Immigrants in New England, from the Library of Congress 
This two-week lesson plan includes links and resources from the Library of Congress: "The lesson focuses primarily on gaining insight into French Canadian immigrants and their contributions by juxtaposing information from American Life Histories: Manuscripts from the Federal Writers' Project, 1936-1940 with that of information from Chronicling America, looking for areas of commonality and contradiction." Created by Linda Hamel and Linda Hedrick.
