Good practices

Some practical examples for visual insight into Newly Arrived Migrants’ transition can be found in a documentary well worth watching: Andreas Koefoed’s ‘At home in the world’. This film tells the story of a number of new pupils in Denmark as they are given initial education and go through the transition from a reception class to another class. The documentary shows the challenges the teacher and pupils face with regard to education and the home situation.

Similarly, Media That Matters’ short film called ‘Immersion’ shows what it is like to come into a class where you do not speak the language. A beautiful and honest portrait of a situation many newly arrived pupils find themselves in. This film can be found on YouTube.
