R&P Orientation Curriculum
Making Your Way: A Reception and Placement Orientation Curriculum was developed to equip refugee service providers with an effective and efficient approach to orientation. Based on the R&P Orientation Objectives and Indicators, the curriculum provides domestic trainers with tools and techniques to help refugees develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they will need during the R&P period, a refugee’s first 30 to 90 days in the United States.
The curriculum has been designed to be a culturally and educationally appropriate model for orientation that can be used either by case managers working with an individual refugee or refugee family, or by staff working with refugees in a group, workshop, or classroom setting.
The full curriculum contains 14 chapters; each of the 11 content chapters begins with a The Basics activity plan addressing particularly pressing information for that topic. The curriculum also contains numerous images, posters, handouts, and other materials for use within the classroom; in addition to its inclusion within the full curriculum, that material can be accessed through the Curriculum Toolkit.
See the Getting Started guide to help you begin using the curriculum.
