Students will: In a report or power point, research why this move happened, when did the migration begin and how? Describe the types of jobs that helped Jamaicans to settle in Canada.
Teachers will: Since technology is usually at the fingertips of all students, the following sites may be helpful to gather information for the research. Just be sure that students properly cite the websites.
