Instructional Ideas

  • Have groups research current causes and issues surrounding migration out of Africa and the Middle East into Europe
Classroom Considerations

  • No map is included in the resource; therefore, post a large world resource map and have class members identify migration routes
Pros

  • The four-page packet includes a brief overview of the project, a materials list, step-by-step directions, an activity, links to related resources, and assessment suggestions
Cons

  • The resource presumes class members understand the concepts of Arabization, Africanization, and Islamization
