George Lucas Educational Foundation. Teaching Poetry of the Immigrant Experience.

‘I’m From’ poems, multicultural poetry collections, and the poetic artifacts of immigration history can teach valuable language arts as well as the rich tapestry of American culture. Bringing poems about the immigration experience into the classroom engenders cultural understanding and empathy. It highlights the human aspect of immigration often occluded by political rhetoric, and it engages youth voice. The site contains six ways to teach poetry of the immigrant experience in the classroom.
