Syrian Refugee Crisis: #Is it my problem

Through this lesson plan, students will explore the concepts of collective and individual responsibility in relation to the refugee crisis in Syria.

This lesson was originally created for middle school language arts but can be easily adapted for elementary and high school humanities classes.

This resource was created during a QFI-sponsored workshop, in collaboration with the University of Oklahoma, the National Council for History Education, and Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration, “The Middle East Refugee Crisis in Historical Context: Teaching for Understanding” held June 21-23, 2016 in Norman, Oklahoma.
