Stories Waiting To Be Told. Refugee Students Find Their Voices in Two Midwestern Communities.
Harrison, Mary M.
Teaching Tolerance, n18 p38-44 Fall 2000
Describes how refugee students learned to deal with pasts that were traumatic or significantly different from their lives in the United States by telling or writing their stories. Their personal narratives helped those around them accept cultural diversity and understand why they react as they do to certain situations. Two sidebars present a consciousness-raising activity and resources. (SM)
