Challenges Facing Immigrant Students beyond the Linguistic Domain in a New Gateway State
Hilburn, Jeremy
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v46 n4 p654-680 Nov 2014
Although there is a great deal of theoretical and practical scholarship related to immigrant students, the extant literature most often conflates the needs of English language learners with the needs of immigrant students (Goodwin in "Educ Urb Soc" 34(2):156-172, 2002; Sox in "Theory Pract" 48:312-318, 2009; Yoon in "Am Educ Res J" 49(5):971-1002, 2012). Findings from this study indicate that teachers in an area with a rapidly rising immigrant population perceived immigrant students to face four significant challenges beyond linguistic considerations. By analyzing interview and focus group data from six high school Civics teachers, this qualitative collective case study is positioned to make recommendations for teachers and teacher educators by bringing attention to the challenges facing immigrant students beyond the linguistic domain in a new gateway state.
