Key Concepts:

Migration

  • The Red Cross have produced a toolkit called Positive Images that looks a variety of issues around migration, including migration patterns and stereotyping. These materials could be integrated into the Moving People Changing Places lesson plans to form a full scheme of work.

Key Concepts:

Identities
  • In the episode of Channel 4’s My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, Boys Will Be Boys, there is a young gypsy who has hidden her identity from her employer because she is afraid that they will sack her if they find out who she is. This situation acts as a good starting point for a discussion on identity, stereotyping and discrimination – as do many others from this series.

Migration Histories:

Black Romans

Viking Legacy

  • Students look at the timeline of a history of Britain and then annotate a map to show where immigrants to Britain came from and when they migrated. Alternatively, they could be given jumbled information to sort.

  • Show some or all of the ‘Official Rewind DVD’ video on the Rewind website to students and discuss the outcomes of the ancestry testing – are they surprised at the results? What does this tell them about the history of migration in Britain?

Migration Histories:

Seeking Asylum
  • Show students the City of Sanctuary video clip. Ask students what the movement aims to do, examples of how they support asylum seekers and how it works


  • If there is a City of Sanctuary movement in the area where your school is located, you could invite a representative to talk to students about its work in their area

  • Using the resources on the City of Sanctuary website, students plan how they would go about making their area a City of Sanctuary. They could pursue this as a project.

Migration Histories:

Fortress Europe

  • Europe and Me is a resource that looks at a variety of issues around the European Union (EU). Unit 4 looks specifically at work and freedom of movement within the EU.

  • The clip from The Poles are Coming is a good starting point for a discussion about the issues of filling manual labour jobs and how migrants from Eastern Europe are filling the gap.

Locations:

Places of Refuge

  • The Red Cross have produced a lesson plan based around a photograph, which is a good starting point for discussing refugee camps
  • In groups, students work out all of the things that would be needed at a refugee camp (eg access to water, food, shelter etc). There is an activity on managing a refugee camp on the Global Education website.

Identities & Cultures:

Art identities

  • Show students a piece of artwork and ask them what it tells them about the artist’s identity/what they think the piece is about. They could be provided with prompt cards, information or stories about the artist as a starting point. There are examples of artworks by migrant artists on the Making the Connections website

  • Students produce a piece of artwork to reflect their own identity (this could link to the full lesson plan Family Identities).

Identities & Cultures:

Sport, identity, migration

  • There are a range of resources, opportunities for workshops and a competition around racism issues linked into football produced by the Show Racism the Red Card campaign
