Angel Island: Gateway to Gold Mountain Discussion Guide

Angel Island: Gateway to Gold Mountain is a compelling story of Chinese immigration to America. The nonfiction text by Russell Freedman examines the challenges, hardships, violence, and discrimination Chinese immigrants endured. This discussion guide for the book includes Common Core-aligned activities that involve reading, writing, research, poetry, discussion, and role-play about the immigrant experience. Your class will take a virtual field trip to Angel Island, describe the voyage from China to America, learn about the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, and consider the contributions of Chinese laborers.
