Unit 3 Migration Policy Memo Project

In this unit, students have been studying about how migration works, and the difficulties some face while making the journey from Central America to the United States. The goals of the policy memo project are to: 1) learn how politicians and important policy makers get their information by crafting a policy memo; 2) educate others on the ongoing crisis of unaccompanied minors from Central America traveling to the United States; and 3) to think critically about solutions to real world problems in our world today.
