December 2015 – Province of BC: Students from Refugee Backgrounds – An indepth guide for schools and teachers from the BC Ministry of Education
Purpose of this Guide
This Guide has been developed for teachers and other school personnel to assist them in welcoming and supporting students, and families who have come from a refugee background. It is designed to:
- provide background information about the refugee experience,
- offer support strategies and suggestions for teachers and other members of the school community who will be working with these children and youth and their families, and
- provide information about resources that teachers and other school and district personnel may find helpful as they prepare for the arrival of new students and families – and for their ongoing support.
