Students from Refugee Backgrounds: A Guide for Teachers and Schools, produced by the BC Ministry of Education (British Columbia, Canada), serves to assist teachers and other school personnel in welcoming and supporting students and families with refugee backgrounds. It provides information on the refugee experience, offers support strategies and suggestions for those working with this population, as well as resources that district personnel may find helpful in preparing for the arrival and supporting new students and families. Examples of items within the resource include a guide for cross-cultural awareness, and a Learning Environment Readiness Checklist.
