Students gain some context for the migration of around 20,000 Ugandan Asians to Leicester in the 1970s, before considering a range of evidence relating to the ‘success’ of the Ugandan Asian community.
Finally, students are equipped to decide how far they agree with a claim made by The Observer that the Ugandan Asians were ‘Britain’s most successful immigrant community’, as they compare the successes of the Ugandan Asians with those of a different migrant group studied in the topic.
This is a great enquiry for developing students’ ability to use evidence in response to an interpretation, and it also includes useful revision of some of the migrant communities studied in previous key questions of the topic.
