To Be A Refugee

May 28, 2011

Here’s my version of a lesson on what it means to be a refugee, which a student teacher inspired me to do. It’s based on a resource by Amnesty International, ‘A Time to Flee’.

The idea behind it is to give students a sense of the stress and tragedy experienced by those who face persecution or death in their own countries, and the difficulties and risks they face as they flee to another country.

There is also a very good online game. which covers the same issue, developed by the United Nations, called Against All Odds.
