Amiguía Americana is primarily addressing the needs and interests of immigrant youth. We have also found that our resources are helpful for non-immigrant youth to play and learn about the immigrant experience in the United States. As such, we have constructed a list of resource to consider using, based on experiencing in our college-level classrooms.

This page was first created to accompany the 2021 Games for Change presentation on “The Role of Play in Multimodal Learning on U.S. Immigration” – video below.

Special thanks to Torrie Hester, Ph.D., and Kate Moran, Ph.D., (Saint Louis University) and Etiony Aldarondo, Ph.D. (Melissa Institute) for your contributions to this list which have been used in courses at Saint Louis University, DePaul University, University of Miami, and beyond.
