PBS Teachers Lounge. “Integrating the Refugee Crisis into Your Curriculum.”
Materials center on the use of the 20-minute documentary ‘Welcome to Canada’ into the classroom. This short film highlights a young Syrian refugee, Mohammed Alsaleh, who was granted asylum in Canada. Mohammed now works to help resettle newly arrived refugees. Welcome to Canada, and its companion lesson plan, “A Refugee’s Story,” encourages students to explore the impact of immigration as well as the themes of cultural displacement, human rights, and resilience.
