Opening Day Assignment


For today's class, you will be getting together with your first quarter workgroup to research the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program and create a coherent position regarding the president's recent statement about changes to the policy. You will be making a brief presentation to the class that summarizes the issue and recommends a course of action to be taken. Your presentation should include the following elements:
  1. A summary of the DACA program--what it is, what is its history, why it was created, why it is controversial.
  2. A summary of the statement made by the attorney general on behalf of the administration regarding the program yesterday.
  3. A statement of whether or not you agree or disagree with the president's directive. What course of action does your group recommend be taken?
  4. Include quotes from two different sources that you cite in your presentation.
  5. Create a Google slides presentation with the two quotes and sources and any other information that would support your presentation


Please remember to be respectful in your treatment of a sensitive topic. There may be people in our school--or even in our class--who could be directly or indirectly affected by rescinding DACA.
