This active learning-based session was developed for undergraduate students in HNRS 212: Humanities in Context: The Southwest. It introduces students to the University of Arizona Libraries Special Collections and primary sources from UAL Special Collections and the Library of Congress related to the Bisbee Deportation in July 1917, when striking mine workers were illegally deported from Arizona.
Through document analysis, students practice critical thinking and work individually and then collaboratively to construct the facts of the Bisbee Deportation. This exercise is facilitated by the archivist, who guides students with contextual questions about the content, intended audience, purpose, and author of their documents.
