Refugee Reflection

Site Leader: Please instruct participants to work individually for the first five minutes. Please keep track of time and facilitate group discussion for the remaining ten minutes by moving through participants' answers to each of the questions.

Our featured lesson investigated the plight of Palestinian refugees. Working individually, take five minutes to briefly answer the following questions:

  • Why is it important for students to know about Palestinian refugees?
  • Why is it important for students to understand the meaning of the term "refugee"?
  • Why is it important for students to understand competing points of view?
  • Choose another refugee situation elsewhere in the world. How might this lesson be adapted to explore that situation?

The remaining ten minutes will be spent discussing your answers in a group.
