Lesson 1: Considering Immigration Issues From Multiple Perspectives
This lesson introduces two distinct points of view on whether the United States should admit Muslim refugees. This exercise will help students to analyze how beliefs about civil and human rights vary among social, economic, and political groups and understand why it is important to consider situations from multiple perspectives. Students will also conduct internet research to find two photographs that express different views on the issue of whether or not to admit refugees. In the process of analyzing these photographs, students will build awareness of how various sources of bias may be used to express a political position and further a cause. Students in PSL Honors seminar will examine local perspectives on immigration.
