Refugees and Resettlement:
A Comparison of Southeast Asian and Central American Refugees
In this lesson students will further their understanding of historiography by writing a detailed expository paper on refugees and resettlement post Vietnam War. The focus of this historiography will be on the people of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Students will utilize the sources provided but should also be encouraged to research their own sources as well. This lesson will challenge students to critically think, research, and write a historiographic expository essay about refugees and resettlement. This essay should convey their knowledge of the subject and should clearly communicate that understanding through their research and written composition.
