Immigration is often at the center of American partisanship. Effective teaching of immigration requires historical perspective, media literacy, political savvy, and a global grasp of human rights. Explore strategies, sources, discussion prompts, and curriculum for teaching about immigration and receive a digital edition of Brown University’s Choices Program unit, Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate, which culminates in students formulating their own ideas on the future of U.S. immigration policy.
Presenter: Delia Pergande, Choices Teaching Fellow
A one-year Digital Editions license for Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate is provided to all who attend.
