From the Back Cover:

By 2040, more than 30 percent of students in the United States will be immigrants or the children of immigrants.

What factors can help these young people thrive in school, despite the many obstacles they face? And how can school staff best support immigrant students’ academic and personal success?

In Portraits of Promise, educators hear from the ultimate experts—successful newcomer students who have been in the United States for five years or less. Drawing on the students’ own stories, the book highlights the kinds of support and resources that help students engage positively with school culture, establish supportive peer networks, form strong bonds with teachers, manage competing expectations from home and school, and navigate the challenges of high-stakes testing and the college application process.

Youth Development and Education Series

Portraits of Promise investigates the question of immigrant students’ success from the vantage point of crucial developmental tasks and skills. Written in an accessible, journalistic style, the book will appeal to high school and college teachers, the general public, and the immigrant community itself. This empirical, asset-based account of immigrant youth adaptation is profoundly needed in our field.” — Angela Valenzuela, professor, Education Policy & Planning Program at The College of Education, University of Texas at Austin

“This book promises to be an important resource for educators. Immigrant students are a generally voiceless community, and Michael Sadowski provides a great service in allowing these young people the opportunity to speak and advocate for themselves.” — Sonia Nieto, professor emerita, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Portraits of Promise provides poignant insight into the educational experiences of academically successful immigrant students. Informed by the perspectives of students themselves, the book eloquently describes the challenges and obstacles immigrant students face. I commend Michael Sadowski for providing practical recommendations for educators to nurture the strengths that immigrant students already possess in order to support their academic success.” — William Perez, associate professor, Claremont Graduate University
