Mr. Fons’ Service Learning Project

The goal of Mr. Fons’ service learning project was to educate the community on current immigration laws and conflicts while students investigate immigration in their own history.  Immigration was a theme throughout the course.  In conjunction with UWM, the students learned about and how to create oral histories.  Mr. Fons’ students created oral histories by interviewing people in their select communities and to learn about how individuals are part of a larger immigration story.  Here are some examples of his students oral history.
