Enhancing the Communication Skills of Newly-Arrived Asian American Students. ERIC/CUE Digest No. 136
This digest focuses on meeting the educational needs of recent Asian Pacific American (APA) immigrants. Newcomers usually have various levels of English proficiency, and many find school rules incomprehensible because they differ so widely from their previous experiences. In addition, American teachers expect children to be interactive, creative, and participatory, while APA parents teach their children to be quiet and obedient, and not to question teachers.
