Teaching Refugees with Limited Formal Schooling, developed by the Calgary Board of Education in Alberta, Canada, is a website that provides support for educators working with refugee students who are new to Canada and may have limited previous formal education. The Teaching Refugees website specializes in how teachers can provide support to refugee students who have experienced trauma, grief, or loss in their home country, and how to help these students succeed in their new environments. Resources include information on how teachers can create safety and routines, help build connections, foster emotional skill development, and learn when to refer students to professional supports. Educators are provided free access to academic publications, educational materials, worksheets of activities, and different programs that help them to work effectively with refugee students. Although the resources provided are for a Canadian educational context, these resources are beneficial for anyone working with refugee students.
