For many students from immigrant families, the shifts in immigration policy over the past month have been much more than a series of news stories; these students are dealing with tangible anxiety. Not only are teachers tasked with responding to students’ fears and providing the support they need, but also they’re working to address the facts and field students’ questions about the rapidly shifting policies.
The Teaching Tolerance staff of the SPLC has put together a package of resources to help you navigate this topic in your classroom and at your school.
Here are just a few of the resources you’ll find:
- A printable poster to let students know they’re welcome at your school
- A helpful guide for supporting children from immigrant and refugee families
- Lessons for teaching a variety of immigration topic
