South-Asian Immigrants--Living in Two Cultures.
Jadhav, Lata
A discussion of the adjustment of South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi) immigrant children in the United States focuses on the experience of these children in schools, and particularly on differences in learning styles. Results of interviews with three elementary school children, one from each of the three countries in question, are summarized. The interviews focused on the children's approaches to learning and studying, parental expectations and academic standards, native and second language use at home, language use and attitudes at school, classroom procedures and environment, and what the children missed about their home cultures. Some cultural traits that may be useful for teachers to understand are discussed briefly. Contains 8 references. (MSE)
