Hi Dina! Thanks for your comment. I'm curious to hear if you've seen specific examples of refugees being able to apply classroom learning to tackling real problems in their communities. Are there any subjects/lessons that seem to really resonate with them and help them connect the dots between classroom and their lives? Can/should instructors be intentional about integrating applicable activities into their lessons? How might we encourage them to do so to a greater extent?
