migratie intro
'Migration' means that groups of people are moving from one place to another. Modern man (homo sapiens) spread out over the Earth, starting in Africa, over 120,000 years ago. People still migrate now. Migration still refers to large groups of people, but individual people who move are also called migrants.

This series of lessons will show you different kinds of migration and different reasons why people migrate, either by choice or by force. We will also look at some examples of mass migration from the past and present and we will look at the effect of migration on different societies in the present.

Students: the assignments:

  1. What is migration?
  2. Inequality gap
  3. Refugees and internally displaced people

  5. Special groups
  6. Large scale forced migration
  7. Large scale voluntary migration
  8. Effects of migration: integration?

To get access to the teacher’s guide, we ask teachers to register and sign in first. Every lesson comes with a teacher’s guide with teaching tips, answers to the questions, and key objectives and attainment targets. The 10 teacher's guides are collected also by us in an all-inclusive teacher's guide.

We have developed a self assesment evaluation tool (SAT) for students and their teachers.

Ideally, the lesson series looks like this

* SAT prior to the lesson series
   * Knowledge: start test for students
   * Skills tool
   * How I act tool
* Your or the students choice from the 10 assignments of the teaching and learning unit
* SAT after the lesson series
   * Knowledge: final test for students
   * Skills tool
   * How I act tool
