This powerful book tells the story of one teacher's odyssey to understand the inner world of immigrant children, and to create a learning environment that is responsive to these students' feelings and their needs. Featuring the voices and artwork of many immigrant children, this text portrays the immigrant experience of uprooting, culture shock, and adjustment to a new world, and then describes cultural, academic, and psychological interventions that facilitate learning as immigrant students make the transition to a new language and culture. Particularly relevant for courses dealing with multicultural and bilingual education, foundations of education, and literacy curriculum and instruction, this text is essential reading for allteachers who will -- or currently do -- work in today's school environment.
Cristina Igoa teaches immigrant students in a sheltered ESL program in the Hayward (California) Unified School District, and at the School of Education, College of Notre Dame, Belmont.
