Part of the 2019 AFT TEACH Conference.
We live in an era of mass migration. In the U.S., 26 percent of school-age students are either immigrants or the children of immigrants, and they are part of the 1 billion people on the move around the world. Thus, young people must understand migration as a shared condition of our past, present and future if they are to develop the knowledge, empathy, and mindsets that sustain inclusive and welcoming communities. We will explore a framework for teaching about migration to promote social, emotional, academic and civic growth. Part 2 will be held at 1:15 p.m. today. Participants must attend both sessions to qualify for a certificate.
Presenter: Adam Strom, director, Re-Imagining Migration
