A glossary of terms, a list of organizations that work on behalf of refugees, a bibliography, and refugee statistics accompany the text. The curriculum includes: (1) "Using This Curriculum"; (2) "Background Information"; (3) "Overview of Selected Refugee Situations: Excerpts from the World Refugee Survey 1994"; (4) "Suggested Activities"; (5) "The Refugee Experience, Study Maps"; and (6)"The Refugee Experience, Student Handouts."
