This page hosts sample lesson plans and resources for teachers to use in designing a unit about refugees and forced displacement. The project, by Rochelle Davis and Grace Benton (Georgetown University) derives itself from field research completed in Jordan and Lebanon during May and Jun 2013. These lessons are aimed at secondary school students.
The world refugee crisis has led civil society to mobilise, and initiatives calling for greater support to refugees have multiplied across countries. But at the same time, there have been increasing demands, especially from schools on how to work on this issue, asking how to discuss it with young people, or with students.
Teachers, educators, facilitators or anyone that wishes to learn more about refugees can use these materials produced by Amnesty International and other organisations.
