Immigration: Resources for Teachers

In the article, authors Timothy Keiper, Cheryl Krohn, and Brenden Kepner offer insight and resources for understanding culturally diverse students, quality ideas for lessons on immigration, and bring current issues and data to students on the topic of immigration and citizenship. This article is a useful resource for teachers because it offers websites for activities pertaining to elementary level classrooms, activities for upper level elementary classrooms that are modified to fit the needs of students, websites that help teachers develop a deeper understanding of immigration, history, policy, and current trends/controversies, and a list of children’s literature that addresses these terms. This resource does not only provide lessons and activities for teachers to implement within the classroom, but provides the teacher with a deeper understanding of these topics.

Keywords: immigration, resources, children’s literature, social studies, elementary, upper elementary,
