Reflection on the guest speaker session

Reflection on the guest speaker session

Dear Students,

Today we had an enriching guest speaker session where the three speakers shared their migration story. Now is the time to share your reflection on the session.

You need to write down the migration journey of each of the speaker- Mr Falak Sheth, Mr Vardan Kabra and Ms Fatema Topiwala.

While writing their migration journey, write about their challenges and identify the reasons due to which they migrated. Classify these reasons under opportunity or need.

You can share your reflection in the form of a table or a timeline or any graphic organizer that can be used appropriately.

This whole task needs to be done in your UOI HW notebook.

 

Thanks and regards
