This session highlights unique multimodal learning about immigration in America. Toma el Paso is a tabletop game designed for unaccompanied immigrant minors (UIMs) to help navigate the shelter release process when in U.S. government custody. We will share strategies for using Toma in college-level immigration courses, combining student analysis of gameplay with assigned texts and media to enable richer reflection on immigration.
