More than 30,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in Canada over the past year?

To help educators meet the needs of Syrian refugees and students from other Arab countries, Promoting Success with Arab Immigrant Students provides background information on Arab culture, as well as tips and suggested resources. Included for parents is an orientation guide to Alberta schools, written in Arabic.

Produced by the Alberta Teachers’ Association in partnership with the Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation, this book is one of four resources in a series that supports immigrant and refugee students.
