The Ellis Island Institute invites teachers of grades 4-12 to the workshop, “Ellis Island 1891-1924: Immigration, Public Health and the American Workforce.” Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the workshop explores the 1891 federal immigration legislation that led to the construction of Ellis Island, including the hospital buildings, and mandated health inspection for all arriving immigrants. The workshop includes a guided tour of the un-restored hospital buildings. The two one-week workshops will take place on July 21-25 and July 28-August 1, 2008. Participants receive a stipend to help defray housing and meals, and partial travel reimbursement.
