A Global Perspective on Immigration

To gain a global perspective on immigration, groups investigate and create a map of the migration patterns in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Class members then examine the background, immigration history, and rights of immigrants to either Ireland, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, or South Korea and craft a presentation detailing their findings.

  • The data charts, reflecting statistics from 2000, would need to be updated
  • The ninth in a series of 13 resources designed to be used in order
Pros
