Mace-Matluck, Betty J.; Alexander-Kasparik, Rosalind; Queen, Robin M.
This book provides teachers and program administrators with information and guidelines to develop effective school programs for immigrant students with limited prior schooling. The limited information about these students is summarized, with in-depth information about the lives, backgrounds, aspirations, educational experiences, and needs of five such students, aged 13-20 years, from Haiti, El Salvador, and Vietnam. Four programs from three states are profiled, featuring the innovative structures and instructional strategies designed to meet the needs of this population and providing program contact information and lists of materials available from each program. The critical features of effective secondary school programs are summarized, and areas in which further research is needed are discussed. (Contains 71 references.) (MSE)
