Supporting Your Child in School Lesson Plan

Refugee parents with children in school should also be aware that in the United States, parents are expected to be involved in their children’s education. Refugee resettlement staff can use this lesson plan to enhance their Cultural Orientation curriculum on the topic.

After this lesson, refugees will better understand their rights and responsibilities that pertain to engagement in their child’s education in the United States.

Activities included in the lesson plan:

    • Discussion on Education
    • It Takes a Village Game
    • Role-Play Activity

Additional Fact Sheet, Podcast, Slideshow, and Video for this lesson plan can be found on the CORE Resettlement Navigator website. Learn more about using these resources by listening to a webinar that features a discussion with Cultural Orientation providers.
