The assignment is as follows:
Talk with someone who has moved from one country to another country, and who has attended school (any level) in which instruction was conducted in a language different from the one spoken in their home. Elicit a personal story about immigration and schooling. Ask this person if they would tell you some stories about their school experience. What significant incidents do they remember about learning the general expectations of schooling in their new country and learning the language of school? Write a summary of their story. First, give some of the general information about the person (no need to name the person), including the story of their immigration. Then briefly relate their narratives and the questions that these stories raise for your understanding of the education of linguistic minority children. How might this “case” fit into our course discussions on culture, language, and education? Use all four readings (Crawford, Garcia, Billings et al. and Palmer) to support your arguments. Finish your paper with whether the passage of California Proposition 58 would have academically and socially supported the person you interviewed or not.
The assignment should be around 2.5 pages (double spaced). PLEASE make sure you are using the readings attached below, at least one quote from each, you can make up the story of the essay, but make sure you back it up with a quote from each reading.
