Teaching About Immigration
Our blog contains numerous resources for teaching about immigration. We’ve written posts on lesson plans, fiction and non-fiction books, films and other online materials that will help teachers explore this topic with their students.
For a list of relevant, exemplary books, see Kalyn Finnell’s Reading Roundup of “10 Bilingual Children’s Books About Immigration.”
In addition to what we’ve shared on the blog, our office, the UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute (LAII), has developed and compiled other curriculum materials to support teaching about immigration and the related context of the U.S.-Mexico border. To learn more about these resources, visit the LAII website or click on the individual links below.
