Exploring Historical and Personal Narratives of Migration in the Classroom

Teachers practice hands-on activities to integrate migration histories and narratives into their educational work.

How can the issue of migration, asylum, and racism be incorporated into the classrooms and educational settings? Which stories are featured in curriculum, and how can the diversity of students’ experiences be reflected?

Digital tools, films, and activities from Reimaginebelonging.org are introduced for participants. The Reimagine Belonging curricula offers concrete activities to be used directly in educational spaces. Through media and storytelling activities, this workshop aims to help teachers explore immigration through historical events, and integrate personal narratives of identity and belonging.

These hands-on workshop are geared for educators in middle school and up, and are appropriate for teachers of subjects such as History, English, and Government.
