For young people without a personal connection to an immigration story, these websites, games, multimedia news pieces, and more, can help put a human face on an abstract debate. For students with first-hand knowledge of the immigrant experience, they can find validation of their stories and/or those of their friends and family. The three tools below give teachers a few ways to approach the topic of immigration in the classroom. While none of these resources offers a complete picture of the situation on its own, they can help students step back for a big-picture, historical perspective on U.S. immigration, as well as zoom in for the details of the lived experience.

Acropole d'Athènes The Propylaia, famous already in antiquity for its brilliant coffered ceilings and the unique design of the monumental entrance to the sanctuary of Athena, was a work of the architect Mnesikles (437-432 B.C.). It consists of a central building with two six-columned Doric porticoes east and west and two Ionic colonnades in the interior, framed at the north and south by two wings with porches in the Doric order. The outbreak of the Peloponnesian War meant that the final work on the surfaces of the monument was never completed. The destruction of most of the superstructure of the central building during the years 1640-1830 , after the explosion of gunpowder that was stored in the monument by the Turks, has led to a gradual loss of authentic building material, so that until now no more than one fifth of it had been recognised.
