    A tale of two worlds: migration into the EU A tale of two worlds: migration into the EU Presentation Transcript

    • A tale of two worlds
    • Key migrant routes to southern Europe
    • Mediterranean migration
    • Accross the Mediterranean Sea
    • … or jumping the fence
    • From Africa to Europe After reading the text, answer in detail: • What are the main migration routes to Europe? • What groups are reaching the EU? • Why do people try to cross the border illegally ? • What are the push factors ? • What are the pull factors ?
    • Creative Writing... • You are now to begin a piece of creative writing about migration to the EU. • Imagine that you are one of the many Africans desperate to get into the EU, bearing in mind the numerous push and pull factors that you are aware of…. • You cannot cross the border legally; you must sneak across. • You are to produce a piece of writing telling the story of how you managed to cross the border (or not!!)
    • How to write creatively… • • • • • • • • use the past tense first person viewpoint (ie. “I”) in chronological order (ie. Order of time) opening paragraph: describe your situation, your feelings and your plans 2nd paragraph: the start of your journey, perhaps mentioning the push factors 3rd paragraph: your journey over the border, still mentioning push but also pull factors use adjectives to project the mood and describe your feelings include lots of your feelings; how would you feel if you got caught??
    • Try to include • Details of the push factors that are making you want to move. • What was attracting you towards the USA (pull factors) ? • How you travelled over the border ? • Any danger you experienced along the way; did you meet the border patrols, did you pay a ‘coyote’ to help ? • What you did if you managed to cross the border
    • Final 3 slides adapted from Carly Goodwin’s presentation, available from http://www.sln.org.uk/geography Possible formats: A diary A letter home An e-mail home A poem A phone conversation
