Integration of immigrants students

Guideline for Students

These guidelines address the integration of immigrant students and target the students themselves. The 10 steps proposed for the user to follow start with the identification of the multiple barriers that they may have to face when wishing to integrate and learn in a new country. In step 1, students are asked to identify the obstacles they have come across and/or imagine. Step 2 details the cultural shock that accompanies many immigration experiences and lays down the foundation of adequate open-mindedness in order to succeed. Steps 3 and 4 invite students to learn about the school as an institution and part of the community, while Steps 5 to 10 help students relate to the school environment at several levels (language and communication, personal relationships and social skills).
Here is the list of the 10 steps:
  1. Identify Multiple Barriers
  2. Accept the Cultural Shock
  3. It is also Your School
  4. Your School is Part of the Community
  5. Learn the Language
  6. Communicate With Others
  7. Talk to the Teacher
  8. Integrate into the Class Group and/or a Peer GROUP
  9. Manage Your Emotions and Feelings
  10. Refuse Racism, Prejudice and Discrimination
