Brainstorming (11/5/19)

Use this collection to help jumpstart your brainstorming process. As you examine how two designers went from brainstorm to final product, you'll practice three brainstorming strategies: 

- Generating as many ideas as you can 

- Keeping the flow going by saying "Yes, And..."

- Generating new ideas by combining 2 existing ideas

Braceros - Using Paintings and Photos to Analyze Mexican Immigrant Labor

This lesson will teach students about the bracero guest worker program, as well as painting, photograph, and textual analysis.  Students will use the Domingo Ulloa painting as a jumping off point for an analysis of working and living conditions of migrant Mexican workers in the United States.  Photographs from the American history collection will show workers's lives in America, while a primary source will show the effects of the bracero program on an individual.  Finally, students will connect the bracero program of 1942-1964 to immigration issues of today by analyzing statements made by Donald Trump in the context of the bracero program.

Bracero Program: Unveiling Stories

In this activity, students will examine photographs documenting the Bracero Program, the largest guest-worker program in US history. Started in 1942 as a temporary war measure to address labor demands in agriculture and railroads, the program allowed Mexican nationals to take temporary agricultural work in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, and 24 other states. By the time the program ended in 1964, over 4.6 million contracts were awarded.

Using two Project Zero Global Thinking Routines - "Unveiling Stories" and "The 3 Ys" - students will analyze the stories these photographs tell about the experiences of braceros in this program, and the impact of these stories in multiple contexts. Additional resources (primary sources, a digital exhibition, and an article) and information on how to use these routines in the classroom can by found by clicking Read More ».

Bracero Program: Step In, Step Out, Step Back

In this activity, students will examine a painting of Mexican guest-workers, known as braceros, involved in the Bracero Program (1942-1964), the largest guest-worker program in US history.  Started as a temporary war measure to address labor demands in agriculture and railroads, the program allowed Mexican nationals to take temporary agricultural work in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, and 24 other states. By the time the program ended in 1964, over 4.6 million work contracts were awarded. 

Using a Project Zero Global Thinking Routine - "Step In - Step Out - Step Back" - students will examine the perspectives of those depicted in the painting, consider what it means to take the perspectives of others, and explore avenues and methods to learn more about Braceros. Resources for learning more about the Bracero program are located at the end of the collection and include: Bittersweet Harvest, a digital exhibition about the Bracero Program; the Bracero History Archive, which includes oral histories, objects, and more; and a Learning Lab collection of photographs documenting the Bracero Program.

Boys Coat, Silk Diaper

The Silk Diaper was made in 1790. It is pretty much a cool jacket situation. Im assuming it was for younger boys, being that it is named a "Boys Coat". It's origin is England. I think the coat is pretty cool, there's actually men's clothing that are still made and tailored to this fit today.

Bottle Rockets

Students will learn about bottle rockets, as well as reviewing the STEM Engineering Design Process. This Learning Lab is a great way to introduce students into understanding a rocket and a bottle rocket, and how it works. These videos will provide students a little bit of background knowledge that is essential before they can begin their design process. 

Students must also be familiar with the STEM Engineering Design Process. By using this process when building their rockets, they will be able to ask questions, brainstorm, design, create, and then learn how to improve their designs.

Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party was a pre-revolutionary incident that occurred on December 16, 1773. The "Sons of Liberty" went to the Boston Harbor, they went on three British ships and pour forty-five tons of tea into the Boston Harbor. This event was a direct response from colonists who disliked the tea tax because it was taxed by someone other than their own representatives. There was also many events leading up to the Boston Tea Party including the different acts that impacted the colonists.

My collection will represent visuals of acts, events leading up to the boston tea party, how tea looked back then and who was involved during this incident. I also displayed the aftermaths of the event.
