As educators, creating an inclusive learning community is paramount to ensure that all students have the knowledge, skills, and understanding to navigate a world of migration and demographic change. To help achieve this goal, we have curated a list of helpful resources that you can use to reflect on your own practice and learn new ideas and strategies to deepen relationships with your students and create a culturally responsive curriculum for our changing communities. Several of these resources draw from the Re-Imagining Migration framework that developed by Veronica Boix-Mansilla of Project Zero in collaboration with Re-Imagining Migration staff,
Below are the resources we have selected:
