Abstract

The immigrant experience has been woven into a tapestry of shared American existence for centuries. Since the number of recent immigrants and US-born English language learners in classrooms across the country has been increasing, the authors suggest a rationale and recommendations for integrating literature depicting the immigrant experience into secondary ELA lessons. The goal is to give all students opportunities to develop cross-cultural understanding though literary engagement.
