Migration, minorities and children’s literature
Sakhnin Academic College
Course Designer & Lecturer: Dr. Rawia Hayik
The course connects children’s literature and academic readings on migrants and minorities with students’ life challenges as members of a minority group in their country. Students are invited to respond to the children’s books and readings using reader response strategies that combine arts and connections to self and community. Additionally, they engage in project-based learning through PhotoVoice projects and making films of displacement that create possibilities for reflection on their challenging reality. Such engagements provide a safe space to reflect on issues of marginalization, identity, privilege, memory, and aspirations for a better future.
