Children of the Harvesters; A Study in Migrant Education.
Porter, Pearl
The economic and social background of migrant farm workers in America; the environments in which they live, work, and are educated; and their general relationship to laws relevant to them form the first part of this book. Part II examines the education of migrant children, the results of poverty and deprivation, the characteristics of the migrant child, and attitudes toward education which are explored in terms of legislative remedies. The objectives and responsibilities of the schools, methods of evaluating the child, and other factors of learning and understanding such as motivation and self-concept are presented. Classroom techniques and ideas are listed and discussed. The book concludes with suggestions for compensatory education and with a glossary of terms unique to the migrant's vocabulary. (BD)
