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

The movement of people across international borders during moments of political, social, and economic upheaval is a recurring theme around the world.  In this workshop, participants will explore major aspects of large-scale human migration, including refugees and political exiles, labor migration, undocumented migration, and political, economic, and social responses to immigration.


Pedagogical focus: Evolving Your Hypothesis

Participants will learn to create central historical questions and sets of competing primary documents to create and experience for students to modify and hone their hypothesis and expectations of historical events over the course of a lesson.  They will learn both a discussion and a writing-based structure that teachers can use many times over the course of any unit or year.

Two hours of post workshop pedagogical follow-up is required to earn CEUs for this course.

This course is not affiliated with the Stanford History Education Group.
