People on the Move: Global Migration in the Past and Present

An upcoming 3-day course that invites teachers of grades 6-14 into the study of global migration.  Registration closed at noon on Monday, April 16.


The movement of people across international borders during moments of political, social, and economic upheaval is a recurring theme around the world.

In this highly engaging and relevant three-day workshop, participants will explore some of the major questions that have and continue to characterize these large-scale movements. Particular attention will be paid to the topics of refugees and political exiles, labor migration, and undocumented migration. The program will include lectures as well as a visit to the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to examine relevant primary documents.

Instructional support will be provided to develop educators’ expertise in making the content relevant to students through inquiry-based, culturally responsive lesson design based on the core history teaching practice of academic discussion. Teachers will have the opportunity to work collaboratively to plan lessons on immigration and migration themes; site-based teaching teams are highly encouraged to register together.

Because CSET believes that transformative professional development only happens when given the opportunity to practice, implement, and reflect, the course registration fee also covers two virtual small group follow-up sessions with a pedagogy specialist and instructional coach. These sessions will focus on lesson plan design and facilitation.

Audience: Designed for history and social science teachers at the community college, high school, and middle school levels.
