Educating Refugee-background Students : Critical Issues and Dynamic Contexts Hardback
Edited by Shawna Shapiro, Raichle Farrelly, Mary Jane Curry
Part of the New Perspectives on Language and Education series
This collection of empirical work offers an in-depth exploration of key issues in the education of adolescents and adults with refugee backgrounds residing in North America, Australia and Europe.
These studies foreground student goals, experiences and voices, and reflect a high degree of awareness of the assets that refugee-background students bring to schools and broader society.
Chapters are clustered according to the two themes of Language and Literacy, and Access and Equity.
Each chapter includes a discussion of context, researcher positionality and implications for educators, policy-makers and scholars.
