Re-imagining Migration “has reinvigorated me as a teacher, inspired me as
a researcher, and encouraged me as an advocate and ally.”
— Participant, Re-imagining Migration Seminar
Our work with educators is grounded in the Re-imagining Migration framework and mission to advance the education and well-being of immigrant-origin youth, decrease bias and hatred against young people of diverse origins, and help rising generations develop the critical understanding and empathy necessary to build and sustain welcoming and inclusive communities.
We achieve this by enriching our understanding of human migration, leveraging educators as pivotal agents of change, and empowering young people as civic agents—the life force of vibrant democratic societies.
Some of the organizations we work with include the American Federation of Teacher’s Share My Lesson, the Boston Public Schools, the National Gallery of Art, Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the Smithsonian Learning Lab, the Tenement Museum, and many others. Reach out to see how we might be able to support your work.
Among the services we provide to educational institutions are the following:
Climate and Opportunities Assessments
Re-imagining Migration faculty work collaboratively to identify opportunities to better serve immigrant-origin students, engage their families, and develop learning opportunities about migration for staff, students, and the educational community as a whole.
Customized Professional Development
After assessing the opportunities, strengths, and needs of educational institutions we develop customized professional development plans, webinars, workshops, presentations, and coaching services for schools, districts, and educational institutions. We can lead or assist in the development and facilitation of Professional Learning Communities (PLC).
Each year we take on a limited number of curriculum development projects for work in schools, after schools, and for community organizations, and in support of media, museum, or library partnerships. Recent projects have been produced with the American Jewish Historical Society, the Covenant Foundation, the Indiana State Historical Library, and the Salem Public Schools.
Community Events and Public Speaking
Re-imagining Migration staff are available to give academic, community, and student presentations on a select basis.
