Teaching Immigration with the Immigrant Stories Project

The digital stories in the Immigrant Stories collection are powerful primary sources for teaching and learning about immigration. We worked with The Advocates for Human Rights to create this curriculum for grade 8- adult learners. The units address 1) why and how individuals and families immigrate; 2) refugee and asylee experiences, past and present; 3) the experiences of immigrant youth and immigrants' children. This curriculum contains lessons plans, fact sheets, worksheets, and classroom activities.​​

Making Digital Stories (First Edition)

Before we launched our story-making website, we developed guides to make Immigrant Stories in college classes and public workshops. They teach participants to make their digital stories using free audio and video editing programs.
