Reviewers sum up two of the most unique and important aspects of this text:
“I have never seen a text before which goes into such depth about immigration and the immigrant himself. This background information will be invaluable to the beginning teacher.”
—Judith B. O’Loughlin, New Jersey City University
“I really like the theoretical framework of the text and the focus on creating teachers who are advocates for their English language learners.”
—Edmundo F. Litton, Loyola Marymount University
With an innovative approach, well-respected authors Virginia Gonzalez, Thomas Yawkey, and Liliana Minaya-Rowe use parallels between ESL, sociocultural, sociohistorical, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds of former eastern and southern European immigrants during the Ellis Island years to persuade current teachers to become committed advocates for contemporary ESL Hispanic and Asian immigrant students.
