Geography Task

The purpose of this task is to provide a student an opportunity to demonstrate competency in an important topic in geography: how push and pull factors influence patterns of human migration. Components of this task are also appropriate for use with GED learners.

In this task, learners read two texts to build background knowledge. There is a text-dependent question set to accompany each of the texts. Learners also watch a video and practice using what they learn to write a GIST summary. Finally, learners conduct a short research project and then write an informational essay that explains the circumstances under which a group of people migrated to Minnesota.
