How and why do people migrate to and from our communities? Lesson 2 of 6

GCSE • Identities & Communities • Core Curriculum

How and why do people migrate to and from our communities?

This lesson is part 2 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Why does our changing community identity matter?

In this lesson, students consider what migration is within this lesson and identify reasons why migration occurs with particular reference to push and pull factors. Students use statistical information to support their understanding of migration. Through use of the points based system they analyse the systems in place within the UK and debate how fair this is.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:

1. What is migration?
2. Why do people change communities?
3. How does the points-based system work?
