As the American immigrant population continues to expand, immigrant children and children of immigrants are entering the public school system. To be most effective, new teaching pedagogies must take cultural diversity into account.
Cross-Cultural Considerations in the Education of Young Immigrant Learners explores some of the contemporary research on young immigrant learners in the United States, reflecting on their particular struggles in language learning, cultural integration, and other curricular and extra-curricular activities. This book will be most useful to teachers, administrators, researchers, and professionals within the public education sector who are looking for enhanced methodologies in the instruction of their multinational students.
