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. 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.
