Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A volume in International Perspectives on Educational Policy, Research, and PracticeSeries Editor: Kathryn M. Borman, University of South FloridaThe book has two parts. Through a series of four interconnected studies, the first focuses on the youths perceptions.We, meaning the reader and I, accompany them on their way into the new school, in chapter 1, andlisten to evaluations of their academic and social experiences. In chapter 2, we learn about their informalsocial adaptation in various life settings, emphasizing gender differences in coping mechanisms. From here, we proceed to public opinion formation in the course of preparation for first-time voting in a new political culture(chapter 3). Perceptions of the military, in chapter 4, as the last stage of compulsory postsecondary civicengagement for Israeli youngsters, close this section.The second part places in the limelight the reactions of the educational system to catering to the needs of theseimmigrants who excel. Chapter 5 dwells on teachers perspectives on the challenge they present, exploringdifferences in these perspectives according to their years of experience and subject matter area. Chapter 6examines the organizational modus operandi of several schools, eliciting field-based models for handling immigrant students. Evolving from the latter, chapter 7 offers an anthropological approach for training teachers to work optimally with immigrant and culturally diverse students.The programmatic epilogue offers an operational model for materializing the potential to enhance global participation for immigrants as well as locals, ensuing from the inter-cultural encounter. Research procedures that are common to a number of studies are explained upon first mention. To aid in thevisualization of adaptive patterns emerging from this large body of data on both immigrant youth and educators in the receiving society tables summarizingfindings are provided for all but chapter 7. In addition to the comparative component, each chapter also includes an assessment of globalizationproneness in light of its specific topic.
