Teaching about Immigration Issues [and] Immigration: Questions and Answers.
Interchange (Population Education Newsletter), v11 n2 Jul 1982
This issue of "Interchange" contains a reading, discussion questions, activities, and ideas to help educators teach secondary students and adults about immigration issues. Students are expected to read and discuss the reading entitled "Immigration: Questions and Answers." This reading analyzes the concerns about current levels of immigration and refugee admission and responds to the questions most asked with the most reliable and up-to-date information available. Also included in the newsletter are discussion questions, activities, and research ideas designed for use with the reading. Group activities involve students in designing an immigration policy of their own and listing and discussing positive contributions and negative impacts of immigration. Two examples of ideas for further study include writing a paper on the many immigrants to the United States who became Nobel prize winners or became well-known in the sciences, arts, or politics and researching local attitudes toward legal and illegal immigration by conducting a survey of the student body, parents, or the community. Also provided in the newsletter is a list of organizations with an interest in immigration and refugee issues. (RM)
