RAISED between Cultures: New Resources for Working with Children of Immigrant or Refugee Background

The pressing needs of populations with unique challenges, such as immigrants or refugees, often stimulate important innovation in development of educational techniques and resources. This article highlights the RAISED between Cultures model, a conceptual framework for understanding children's experiences holistically and promoting intercultural practice in interactions with children and families. The model outlines six important factors to consider when working with children who are raised between two or more cultures and languages and who are growing up in families of immigrant and/or refugee background. The acronym "RAISED" was intentionally created to help educators remember the six key messages of the model, and to facilitate application of the framework and reflection in their own work: Reveal culture; Acknowledge pre-Migration experiences; Identify post-migration systemic barriers; Support family and community strengths; Establish connections between environments; Determine child outcomes together with families.
