Visão Geral da Atividade

Since they can overlap, teachers may want to use this template specifically for vocabulary, or just for allusions, as this example displays. In this activity, students will create a storyboard that defines and illustrates key terms and allusions that are historical, religious and cultural related to Refugee. Previewing these can help students better understand the story and learn about the Holocaust and the time period for Josef's story, Cuba under Fidel Castro for Isabel's story, and the Syrian Civil War for Mahmoud's story.
