GCSE • Identities & Communities • Core Curriculum

How has migration affected our society?

This lesson is part 3 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Why does our changing community identity matter?

In this lesson, students consider facts and figures about migration and begin to analyse the impact of migration in the UK. Students are to analyse a controversial statement to enable them to critically assess the extent of migration in the UK and consider the positive and negative impacts it has had. Students draw their own conclusions through development of their debating skills. This lesson is designed to dispel the misconceptions students may have regarding migration often created by the media and political campaigning.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:

1. What are the key features of migration to the UK?
2. How is migration managed in the UK?
3. What are the effects of migration?
