Topics addressed include (1) the social and educational needs of immigrant children; (2) the impact of resettlement; (3) adult language acquisition; (4) citizenship education; (5) developments in literacy research and education; and (6) involvement of limited-English-speaking parents in their children's education. A 41-item bibliography and a list of organizations providing resources are included. (MSE)
