Teaching About Migration
Immigration is a regular topic of conversation amongst many groups of people and remains a key issue in our 21st century geography curriculum. As a topic it has an obvious relevance to all our lives but it remains one of those 'difficult' topics to teach. It links up with issues such as 'diversity', 'citizenship' and 'community cohesion' which are a focus of the broader school curriculum.
In this unit, there are four exemplar teaching and learning activities on immigration that can be adopted and/or adapted for use in your classroom. This is followed by a guided opportunity for teachers to develop their own teaching and learning activity based on the question 'what would happen if all immigration to the UK suddenly stopped?'. You can work through the unit in a linear fashion or just choose the bits which are most relevant to you. It is recommended that you begin with Getting Started as this puts the unit in context.
