Year 11 - Debating Issues on Migration

The Year 11s have been looking at the reasons why people migrate to different places and whether the process 'fits' in to traditional models. The group then explored the impact that migration can have on both the country of origin and destination. While investigating the impacts it became clear that there were many views held on whether migration was seen as a positive or a negative for countries and so a debate ensued. To make the debate more formal the class was divided into two and were asked to explore either the negative or positive geographic factors of Mexican migration into the USA. Below are a series of photographs showing the students performance at the debate.
