As humans, stories are at the fundamental to who we are—sharing them with an audience that listens validates our experiences. By creating a space in which our students’ stories can share their histories, we are telling them that they matter. Stories are also central to the experience of migration. Through stories, we transmit experiences, pass down culture, and connect with others. In this unit, we will explore the relationship between stories, identity, and migration by engaging with the stories of others and our own.
