Ideas for Teaching About the Ukrainian Refugee Crisis
The nonprofit Facing History and Ourselves has released resources to help students make sense of what is happening in Ukraine and the ongoing refugee crisis. The curriculum for teachers of middle school and high school students includes reflectivequestions designed to get students talking and come to an in-depth understanding of the war.
The curriculum is focused on the Head, Heart, and Conscience model. It helps teachers contribute to the conversation by looking at the human component and inspiring empathy among students. So far each of the two Ukraine resources has had more than 10,000 downloads.
