EDUC 152. Immigration and Education

In this research seminar, students will study intersections between immigration and education policy and practice in the United States. Through readings on historical and contemporary immigration and schooling, students will consider the shifting goals and approaches to educating immigrant youth in the U.S. and the ways in which immigration policies impact the everyday experiences and future prospects of immigrant youth at different ages and educational stages. Students will conduct a literature review on an immigrant population of their choice and will develop qualitative research skills through a group research project on current immigration and education policy. Students' research will culminate in a short film, piece of public scholarship, or journal article, depending on students' interests and strengths.
