Latinx History of Wisconsin
St. Anthony High School Collaboration
HIST 4120: Immigration to the United States
Students in Alison Efford’s immigration history class collaborated with students from St. Anthony High School to produce websites on specific aspects of the Latinx experience in Wisconsin. The high schoolers visited campus five times during the semester and helped choose topics, analyze sources, and present material in a form that might interest the Latinx community today. The Marquette students’ responsibility was to guide the high school seniors through the project, find and analyze primary (first-hand) and secondary (second-hand or scholarly) sources, complete the website, and write a reflection on the experience at the end of the semester.
The students presented their research and websites to the Marquette community at the end of the semester. Among the websites were:
Language Barriers in Wisconsin’s Education System
Latinx Community in Wisconsin
Latina Educational Reform
Latinx Murals in Milwaukee
Mary Kate Jezuit
Latinx Education: Wisconsin
Latinx Catholics in Milwaukee
Students from St. Anthony High School visited campus to share their websites, in collaboration with students from Dr. Efford's class, to Marquette faculty.
