Understanding Refugees in the Classroom: high school lesson plan

The Canadian Civil Liberties Education Trust has recently published a suggested lesson plan for high school students on what it means to be a refugee, particularly in the Canadian context. The critical-thinking lesson plan is a good introduction to concepts of refugee protection and includes a step-by-step lesson plan, discussion questions, handouts and suggestions for further reading. The lesson plan fulfills several provincial curriculum expectations, as outlined by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Access it online here.
