Product Description
I am an award winning Global Studies teacher. See my profile for evidence of credibility. During the summer of 2014, the front pages of the newspapers were focused on the massive amounts of migrants / refugees from Central America which were streaming across the southern border of the USA. Many of the migrants were unaccompanied children. This issue sparked significant controversy, and much debate as to why these children were coming here, and what we should do about it. Although the issue has quelled, and is no longer on the front pages (ISIS is!), the causes for the migration are still alive.

This power point provides an overview as to causes of out-migration from one country in particular: Honduras. If you don’t know much about Honduras, you might be surprised to know that Honduras is the “murder capital of the world.”

I would recommend that before you access this power point that you access my Central America migration crisis power point, which will give you and your students an overview of the crisis. That power point consists of a variety of maps, graphs, charts and lists which will involve students in understanding the crisis, and to ask lots of questions.

Additionally, if you found the Honduras power point valuable, and want to know more, I’d suggest you access the products on Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica that are in my store.
