Korean-American Student Perceptions on Literacy and Identity: Perspectives from an Ethnographic Case Study
Choi, Jeonghee; Godina, Heriberto; Ro, Yeon Sun
Asia Pacific Journal of Education, v34 n3 p259-272 2014
This ethnographic case study examines perceptions of literacy and identity for a Korean-American student in a third-grade classroom. The researchers examine how teachers can misinterpret Asian identity in the classroom due to perceptions related to the "Model Minority Myth" and other stereotypical representations of Asian culture. By focusing solely on academic success, teachers miss opportunities to gain insight for nurturing other areas of student success and adjustment in the classroom environment. Implications for identity formation and authentic integration of language and literacy practices are discussed. Educators interested in culturally-relevant instruction for immigrant students should find this study informative.
