Packet contains nonfiction and narrative texts to teach students about human migration throughout history. Articles focus on a variety of cultures and time periods, as well as the over-arching causes, challenges, and opportunities connected to human migrations.
Packet also contains home connection assignments which require students to discuss material with their families, as well as a project where they learn and present their own family's history.
Many IB elements are included, such as a connection to the key concepts and transdisciplinary themes.
A table of contents, along with points assigned to each part of the packet, is also included.
I used this packet while reading Esperanza Rising with the students during our Where We Are in Place and Time unit. Students worked in expert groups (GLAD) and focused on specific cultures, and then presented what they learned to their classmates.
