Migrant voices and experiences

22 Dec

I am looking to collate a selection of resources for a Year 8 or 9 class about then migrant experience.  I am keen to begin our study with extracts from Shaun Tan’s The Arrival, and then to follow-up with some non-fiction extracts.  In particular I am keen to have them listen to some audio accounts of arriving in and experiencing Australia. Then, in order to help them recognise that challenges and triumphs are not peculiar to the Australian experience, I might ask students to read accounts pertaining to British migrants.
