The purpose of this culturally responsive guide is to help bridge research from the academy to classrooms, with the recognition that only by learning from and with each other, can we help our immigrant-origin and English Learning students reach their full potential. We believe that educators need creative and effective strategies to address the unique strengths of and challenges for immigrant-origin students, who are defined as the children of immigrants. They can be first-generation (born abroad) or second-generation (born in the U.S. with a foreign-born parent). Both share parents who are immigrants. Some are English Language Learners, and some are not. Finding ways to optimize their successful inclusion into schools is both an economic and a democratic imperative.
