The AFT’s Share My Lesson offers a collection of immigration lesson plans and resources to help teachers educate all students about immigration and create inclusive school communities.
Teachers, parents, and immigration advocacy organizations from across the country, including PBS NewsHour Extra, ADL and Re-Imagining Migration have contributed to these resources. Anyone can access these resources for free and they are designed to support all educators and students.
This collection is part of the #FamiliesBelongTogether collection, addressing the humanitarian crisis on the U.S. Southern border. Since April 2019, Health and Human Services has taken approximately 40,900 children into custody, which is up 57% from last year. With the Trump administration planning mass arrests of "illegal immigrants" beginning this summer, these resources are more important now than ever.
Find more resources in English and Spanish on AFT.org. Learn more about the AFT's protest at the U.N. in Geneva to demand justice at U.S.-Mexico border. And you'll find an additional guide and resource collection via Colorin Colorado.
