Senator Mark Warner’s Speak Up for Immigration lesson has made a big splash in the UClass community, challenging students to think about the hot button topic of immigration reform. Next week, he will be joining a Skype conversation with a classroom from Charlottesville High School, the Virginia-based flagship institution for this lesson. Senator Warner will be holding a videoconference to discuss with students the immigration landscape and to hear their opinions on how to improve policy in the U.S.
The Speak Up for Immigration featured lesson, co-authored by Senator Mark Warner; graduate student, Robin LeRosen; and ELL teacher, Tina Vasquez, is supported by the University of Virginia’s Educating for Global Citizenship. The activity calls for students to write letters to the President or an elected official about what should be done to improve our nation’s immigration system. With stakeholders from across fields stepping out to educate and unite classrooms in reflection about this important issue, we hope that you won’t let this participation opportunity pass you by.
Let your voice be heard and may it foster an informed generation of young leaders.
