This middle school curriculum guide helps teachers to work with students to explore the experiences of new immigrant children and to nurture student understanding of migration and its impact on individual refugees and recipient community members. An introductory section ("Notes to the Teacher") explains the issues that call for this program, the central concept of migration, the unit contents, and teaching strategies. Each of the document's five units contains several lessons with descriptions of the curriculum's rationale, objectives, teaching time, materials, keywords, procedures, and evaluation. Unit I ("Exploring Our Immigrant Roots") introduces the program's three sub-concepts: places of origin, push-pull factors, and migrant adjustment. Unit ii ("Migration in Historical Perspective") explores migration in the United States. The following three units explore the experiences of new refugees in depth, particularly Salvadoran and Cambodian children: "Unit iii: The New Immigrants: Learning about Their Cultures"; "Unit iv: Migrating to a New Land: The Push/Pull Factors"; and "Unit v: Arriving and Adjusting to a New Land." Included are extension and upper grade activities and an appendix containing a 30-item glossary, background information on Cambodians and Salvadorans, and a 16-item list of additional teaching resources.
