Empower Educators to Teach Immigration
Burnett, Sara; Kugler, Eileen Gale; Tesh, Claire
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n4 p15-20 Dec 2015-Jan 2016
Over the past decades, U.S. immigration has changed significantly, yet the way we teach about immigration in schools has changed little. The American Immigration Council has developed a two-year program on Long Island, an area experiencing an increase of new arrivals and anti-immigrant sentiment. The program empowers teachers with the knowledge to teach immigration factually and critically. Results have demonstrated an increased understanding of immigration, and a change in attitudes among participating students and teachers.
