Stages of Immigrant Parent Involvement--Survivors to Leaders
Han, Young-chan; Love, Jennifer
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n4 p21-25 Dec 2015-Jan 2016
Immigrant parents are not all alike. They vary in language skills as well as their understanding of U.S. culture. All of this affects their ability, if not inclination, to become engaged in their children's education. Educators can assist families by understanding the stages of immigrant parent involvement, which identifies parents' needs, skills, and interests as they move through the stages of Cultural Survivor, Cultural Learner, Cultural Connector, or Cultural Leader. Understanding these stages better equips educators to identify where families are as well as their unique challenges, and helps determine how to best support them.
