Refugees and migration: Global Words

Refugees and migration: Global Words | GEP Asian Literacies for the Connected Classroom | Scoop.it

This unit of work, Words to unite us, allows students to explore the complex theme of a common humanity, using the picture story books Whoever You Are, written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Staub, Mirror by Jeannie Baker, and The Little Refugee by Anh Do and Suzanne Do and illustrated by Bruce Whatley.

Whoever You Are shows that despite the differences between people around the world, there are similarities that unite us, such as pain, joy and love. Mirror, with two parts designed to be read simultaneously, shows that despite differences families are essentially the same. The Little Refugee tells of Anh Do’s family’s escape from Vietnam and his life as a child in Australia. The story speaks of hope, resilience, friendship, love and enterprise.

Marilyn Snider's insight:

Global education through literacy.

Immigration Nation

Immigration Nation | GEP Asian Literacies for the Connected Classroom | Scoop.it

Immigration Nation - When the Commonwealth of Australia was founded in 1901, the very last thing the nation wanted to be was multicultural. The measures taken to ensure this would be the case not only caused great human suffering, but in a supreme historical irony, actually helped create the very threat Australia feared the most – invasion from the Asian north.


The Immigration Nation: The Secret History of Us SBS series explores Australia's history from the White Australia policy to multiculturalism.
