Refugees in History and in the History Classroom.
Gillett, Paula
OAH Magazine of History, v4 n4 p14-18 Spr 1990
Teaching about refugees and having refugees as students requires examining ethical questions concerning responsibilities of U.S. citizens and providing refuge for oppressed peoples. Suggests that, through teaching historical understanding of these issues, one builds community in multi-ethnic classrooms and helps to combat hostility toward newly arriving peoples. (NL)
