Japanese Migration and the Americas: An Introduction to the Study of Migration.
Mukai, Gary; Brunette, Rachel
This curriculum module introduces students to the study of migration, including a brief overview of some categories of migration and reasons why people migrate. As a case study, the module uses the Japanese migration experience in the United States, Peru, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay. The module introduces students to categories of migration such as rural-urban migration, urban-urban migration, cyclical migration, forced migration, return migration, remigration, and U-turn migration. Student activities in the module are structured around the theory of multiple intelligences. The module first presents a general introduction and then proceeds to an introductory activity which sets the context and contains transparencies and handouts. Next, the module's activities section provides a look at the eight countries with a Japanese immigrant population and then offers eight activities, one for each country studied. Contains a glossary and references. (BT)
