If you’re a teacher who encourages students to view controversial subjects as evolving and complex, then you’ll find Homeland: Immigration in America, a three-hour documentary series that explores one of the most polarizing issues facing America today, a great resource. WGBY airs the first of the series on tonight, July 20, at 9pm. A PBS Election 2012 national special, the series is narrated by Ray Suarez, senior correspondent for PBS NewsHour.
Classroom resources are available to foster opportunities for students to take charge of their own learning with quality, engaging, relevant tools intended for today’s busy teachers and parents. You can explore our online discussion guide designed to complement Homeland’s video content to bring the national debate to your classroom and encourage students to approach immigration with a discerning eye.
