Mission Statement

The American Immigration Law Foundation's Curriculum Center strives to promote a better understanding of immigrants and immigration by providing educational resources that inspire people to engage in thoughtful dialogue, creative teaching, and critical thinking while being culturally and historically sensitive to others.

Description

AILF's Curriculum Center is a uniquely modeled teachers' resource center and clearinghouse of teaching ideas and resources related to the topic of immigration and human migration. The Curriculum Center supports teachers in engaging their students and their communities in thoughtful dialogues centered on the issue of immigration and multiculturalism. The center is managed by professional educators who spend time in classrooms as instructors and who are dedicated to the dissemination of well-designed, easy-to-use and factual materials that promote the positive influences immigration has had on our nation.

The Curriculum Center's overall mission in the professional development of teachers is to fill in the immigration subject gap existing in teachers' guides, text-books and classroom resources. The common goal is to inspire, promote and support creative teaching while incorporating current and historic aspects of immigration. Working directly with teachers enables us to spread a wealth of information and inspire teachers by providing them with valuable materials and lessons that they will use in their classrooms, schools and communities for years.
