Summary Here is up-to-date information on immigrant students, ages 5-18. Use the socioeconomic, demographic, linguistic, and educational characteristics identified in this book to assess the impact of immigrant students on your school or district. Learn how to deal with the challenges and potential problems connected with educating our immigrant students. This book helps you tackle the educational implications surrounding these key issues: Who are the current immigrants? How are they different from previous immigrants and from one another? What is their level of English language comprehension? How does the educational achievement of immigrants, their native-born children, and their grandchildren compare with that of other students in the U.S.?
Rong and Preissle examine our current schooling theories and practices and show how they interact with where immigrants live, as well as with their social class, race, ethnicity, nationality, and gender. The authors build on this knowledge to give you a practical resource you can use to be successful with immigrant students in your school or district.
