Windrush, Refugees and Asylum Seeking – Busting the Myths

This lesson is part 4 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Why does our changing community identity matter?

In this lesson, students will develop an understanding of an episode of migration in our history that has affected our communities and caused change. This story begins after WWII but continues to 2018. Students will be given the opportunity to explore how this case study of one group of migrants illustrates a range of political and social effects of migration.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:

1. Refugees, asylum seekers or migrants?
2. Who are the Windrush generation?
3. How were they treated at the time?
