The Right To Dream: Educators Supporting Undocumented Students In Boston Public Schools, Heidi K. Rausch, Claudia Martinez Mar 2018

The Right To Dream: Educators Supporting Undocumented Students In Boston Public Schools, Heidi K. Rausch, Claudia Martinez

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

Undocumented youth are among the most vulnerable groups in the United States. Their achievements are many and the obstacles they face sometimes seem unsurmountable. There are a few immigration policies that assist these students, but not nearly enough. Despite the challenges they face (financial, lack of information, institutional, anxiety, increased responsibility) and the invisibility that comes from silence regarding their immigration status, many are indeed able to achieve personal and academic success. Key to that success are the families, teachers, counselors and other adults in their lives. This presentation highlights the work of Unafraid Educators, a committee of the Boston ...

We will look at the ways in which Black women as collections professionals face invisibility, coded language, and increased mental and emotional labor while operating in a profession that is 85.2% White. We will offer practical strategies ...

Bilingualism And The American Family, Caitlin M. Nickerson May 2017

Bilingualism And The American Family, Caitlin M. Nickerson

Senior Honors Projects

Bilingualism is the ability to speak more than one language fluently. People of all ages may aspire to learn a second or third language in order to fulfill both personal goals and communicate with a variety of people in different contexts. Irrespective of one’s walk of life or socioeconomic status, being bilingual is a valuable skill. Although English is the language of power in the United States, there are hundreds of other languages spoken in this country.

There are a number of different ways in which children can become bilingual. For example, they may enter the school system speaking ...


Organization Of Vocabulary In L2 Spanish Textbooks: Semantic Relationships Within And Between Vocabulary Lists, Brody Dingel Apr 2017

Organization Of Vocabulary In L2 Spanish Textbooks: Semantic Relationships Within And Between Vocabulary Lists, Brody Dingel

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

The use of semantically related words in new vocabulary lists is common practice in second language textbooks. However, research has suggested that organizing new foreign language vocabulary in semantic sets may cause interference and even slow acquisition as compared to other organizational methods (Erten & Tekin 2008). When it comes to assessing the frequency of this semantic organization of new vocabulary in foreign language textbooks, relatively little research has been done, especially with regard to Spanish textbooks. López-Jiménez's study (2012) on vocabulary in Spanish textbooks found that semantic organization was present in six of twelve textbooks surveyed, but the definition ...

Department of Education Studies Conference Paper

This paper provides an in-depth understanding on the ‘out of school’ phenomenon for ethnic minority students in a secondary school in Hong Kong. While the school was comparatively new in admitting ethnic minority students it already experienced one of them completely dropped out of school only after Form One and several others at risk of dropping out. Fieldworks with principal, two teachers, one ethnic minority education support program staff and a brand new complete dropout student of the school over the period of three months offer conceptualizing dynamics of ‘out of school’ phenomenon specific to the context of the school ...


From Policy To Practice: Challenges Of Ethnic Minority Education And The Promotion Of Cultural Responsiveness In Hong Kong Secondary Schools, Ming-Tak Hue Jul 2013

From Policy To Practice: Challenges Of Ethnic Minority Education And The Promotion Of Cultural Responsiveness In Hong Kong Secondary Schools, Ming-Tak Hue

Department of Education Studies Conference Paper

An important feature of Hong Kong’ education reform over the past decade has been the articulation of the “no loser principle”. It was meant to signal that all students are valuable and will benefit from both basic and senior secondary education. Yet barriers remain for the 2.9% of students under age 15 who can be classified as ethnic minorities. The educational needs of these students also remained invisible in the school system until the 2008 Racial Discrimination Ordinance and the implementation of inclusive education policy in 2002 (Education Bureau 2010, 2011). The paper examines the policy context in which ...

The “Me” With Them And The “Them” Within Me: Negotiating Ethnic Identity In Cultural Diverse Schools, Jan Gube Jul 2013

The “Me” With Them And The “Them” Within Me: Negotiating Ethnic Identity In Cultural Diverse Schools, Jan Gube

Department of Education Studies Conference Paper

This presentation examines the construction of ethnic identity in culturally diverse schools from a sociocultural perspective. Building on Hermans’ work on dialogical self, the presentation draws attention to the nexus between ethnic self and cultural others as a result of diverse in-the-head voices embedded in institutional environment of schooling. The first section discusses how self is considered through positing multiple I-positions that challenges notion of centralised self, opening up a conduit to probe how self is occupied by other individuals both in inner and outer world. In the second section, I argue that minority individuals’ ethnic identity construction related to ...
