Strategies for Engaging Immigrant and Refugee Families (Education Development Center)
This guide shares examples of school systems around the country that have effectively engaged immigrant and refugee families to improve their health and educational experience.
This list of recommended resources includes background information on refugees, information about specific countries and conflicts, classroom resources, and video game simulations for students.
These resources provides background on the civil war that has driven Syrians from the country, as well as on Syrian cultural customs and what Syrians bring to their new communities.
Sesame Workshop and the IRC are currently developing a partnership to deliver early learning and social-emotional support to millions of refugee children in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria. You can learn more about the partnership on the Sesame Workshop website, as well as from this NPR story about the work the team is doing to solicit input from "relief organizations, trauma experts, academics, and others who have worked with refugees."
