The article discusses the different teaching tactics in teaching migration, race and place from the U.S. Latino historian's perspective. In using the historically grounded interdisciplinary approach, the teacher expose the students to an intellectually collaborative environment where critical thinking and analytical writing skills are used to have a productive exchange of ideas. Students develop their historical perception and knowledge of the past through having the opportunity to serve as discussion facilitators, group presentation assignments and through writing critical response papers. In the multifaceted approach, the session aims students to become active learners and develop their thinking and writing ability through the combination of instructional approaches like formal lectures.
