Re-imagining Migration creates and curates resources, including lesson plans, primary sources and literary text, videos, audio stories, blogs, art, and political cartoons, for use with students to promote a deeper understanding of the experience of migration. We have aligned these resources to the Re-imagining Migration learning arc to help educators select appropriate resources to support their learning goals. Many of the resources are paired with reflection questions, pedagogical suggestions, as well as thinking routines that can be used to bring these resources to life in teaching. As you will see, our focus in suggesting classroom activities and reflection questions prioritizes inquiry, analysis, perspective-taking, and moral/ethical inquiry over suggestions for scaffolding text. We have made that choice because, not because we do not recognize the importance of these strategies, but because we recognize the wide range of learners and educational settings that are likely to access the resources we are creating and collecting.
Over time, we seek to develop a library that features the ways that educators from across learning ecosystems are using the collection. In the meantime, you can find examples of the kind of educational practices we seek to promote on our blog. Please reach out to us if you have a model practice that you would like to share with our network.
