"The Little Refugee" by Anh Do

"The Little Refugee" by Anh Do | HUMS - Who are the people of Australia? | Scoop.it

VELS Humanities Level 2

 

By observing the characteristics of different places, and prompted by questions, students think about environmental differences, locally and in other parts of Australia and the world, and why these differences exist.

 

How and why the resource would be used in the classroom for HSE learning (prep-year 2)

I would use this as part of an "Asian perspectives" unit of study. 

I would use this text to highlight the difficulties and hardships faced by Asian refugees arriving in Australia. 

The students would first read the text as a class, then discuss which events they think would have been the most difficult. 

The students would then work in pairs to identify the route the characters from the text travelled.

 

A brief description of how your resource/activity responds to an aspect or aspects of the readings for that week
Quotes from this weeks readings that this resource relates to are:

"Intercultural understanding is attitudinal and behavioural in essence, and ought to mean in practice that all students feel they belong in the school, Australian society and beyond and can see themselves in the curriculum."

"An understanding of Asia underpins the capacity of Australian students to be active and informed citizens working together to build harmonious local, regional and global communities, and build Australia's social, intellectual and creative capital."

The Island by Armin Greder is a powerful picture book. It is  a rich classroom resource. The art throughout is very effective and there are many lesson ideas tapping into the study of the rich illustrations. This webpage looks at some other works by Gedder.

Refugees and migration: Global Words

Refugees and migration: Global Words | HUMS - Who are the people of Australia? | 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.
