Synopsis

Written for educators of all grade levels, this book provides critical information about the educational needs of Cambodian, Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese-American students in U.S. public schools. Written by educators who have lived through many of the experiences discussed, the book is an intimate account, as well as a comprehensive scholarly survey of the seven major Asian-American groups. For each Asian-American group there are two chapters: one sociocultural and one linguistic. Each vividly documents the unique characteristics of each ethnic group and provides effective strategies to work with students and parents. Given the dearth of literature on the education of Asian immigrant students, this book can serve as an effective guide for teachers, teacher educators, school administrators, and support service providers, and help shape the educational programs, practices, and policies for the seven major Asian-American groups.

CLARA C. PARK is Associate Professor of Education, California State University, Northridge. MARILYN MEI-YING CHI is Professor of Language and Literacy Education, San Jose State University.
