Refugees, Asylees, and the Unaccompanied - 012659
Participants will gain a basic understanding of the refugee/asylee process, including what happens to Unaccompanied Minors once they reach the border. In addition, the unique needs and cultural differences of the refugee/asylee/unaccompanied student, and how these factors affect the classroom, will be examined. Information gained will aid teachers, administrators, and others to effectively meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of your newcomer, refugee, asylee and unaccompanied students. Since these students often have no state testing scores, methods for initial classroom assessment (and how to understand the limited data that does exist) will be included.
