Linguistically Diverse Immigrant and Resident Writers : Transitions from High School to College, Paperback / softback Book

Linguistically Diverse Immigrant and Resident Writers : Transitions from High School to College Paperback / softback

Edited by Christina Ortmeier-Hooper, Todd (University of New Mexico, USA) Ruecker

Part of the ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series series

Paperback / softback

Description

Spotlighting the challenges and realities faced by linguistically diverse immigrant and resident students in U.S. secondary schools and in their transitions from high school to community colleges and universities, this book looks at programs, interventions, and other factors that help or hinder them as they make this move.

Chapters from teachers and scholars working in a variety of contexts build rich understandings of how high school literacy contexts, policies such as the proposed DREAM Act and the Common Core State Standards, bridge programs like Upward Bound, and curricula redesign in first-year college composition courses designed to recognize increasing linguistic diversity of student populations, affect the success of this growing population of students as they move from high school into higher education.
