Resources for Immigration: Links for High School Students

If you read this blog with any regularity, you’ll know that I don’t truck with much that has anything to do with teenagers. However, there are always exceptions to the rule.

Marc Aronson is a writer, editor, publisher, speaker, and historian. In the past he guest blogged on this site a post about the global cooperation of the Thai cave rescue and one about the design and flow of nonfiction. Today he’s doing something far briefer. It is, however, something a teacher you know might benefit from. I’ll let Marc explain:

“The students in a recent Rutgers Masters’s class on Young Adults, Reading, and Literacy set out to curate resources for high school students related to immigration. They set out to locate and then select materials in a variety of genres that could be useful — from memoirs and documentaries to role playing games, graphic novels, and even opposing voices. Both in terms of the materials they chose and as the outline of many avenues into a crucial and complex topic I thought it might be of interest to readers of Fuse8.”

You can find the full roster of Immigration slides here if you’re curious. Take. Read. Disperse. Use.

Many thanks to Marc and the students of his Masters class for the fantastic resources.
