"Where Do I Go from Here?": Meeting the Unique Educational Needs of Migrant Students Karen S. Vocke  
More Details

“Where Do I Go From Here?” by Karen Vocke is a practical and well written book that will appeal to teachers, administrators, and other community members where migrant workers live and these workers' children go to school. The book contains valuable resources, including lesson plans and other materials that could be used by teachers of other ESL children, as well as by teachers whose students are not learners of English. The book helps the reader become aware that educational opportunity and equality do not exist as static entities, but rather are created by whole communities, especially those who choose to make the invisible more visible.

  - Prolepsis

 In our current society, teachers are faced with students who move frequently from place to place, speak a language other than English, and represent diverse cultures. This book shares many strategies and ideas that will help a teacher, experienced or novice, to meet the needs of these “new” students found in U.S. classrooms.

 

- Cheryl BoothbyState and Federal Programs Director and Special Education Director Hartford, Michigan, Public Schools   Migrant farm laborers are often called America's “invisible people” - a term that, tragically, is just as applicable to their children. Because their lives are transitory and their English skills often limited, our opportunities to have a lasting impact on their literacy education are far too brief. But that makes these children no less deserving of our full commitment. In “Where Do I Go from Here?” Karen Vocke describes how to make the most of each day, creating an educational experience that will serve all children long after they leave our classrooms.   Always mindful of state standards and assessment requirements, Vocke demonstrates how to modify the curriculum and adapt strategies to facilitate English language acquisition and content-area knowledge. She provides vital information on: the history, culture, and families of migrant students so that we better understand - and respect - the foundation on which their lives are builtessential language considerations, with an emphasis on what we can do now to help struggling English learners become more proficientculturally responsive materials and lessons, with guidelines on how to evaluate books, along with a complete lesson plan for promoting cultural sensitivitythe need for an inclusive community of readers and writers, based on the principles of cooperative learning and supported by a lesson plan on student heritage and tradition as well as other activities that create a culture of sharingways to foster both literacy and cultural understanding through technology, especially the many benefits of digital storytelling, with easy-to-follow guidelinesthe importance of involving migrant families and communities, with suggestions on overcoming language and cultural barriers as well as specific steps you and your school can take.  All this is supported by a wealth of helpful materials, including additional resources for working with migrant families, organizations you can contact for more information, recommended children's literature and wordless picture books, and letters and announcements to parents in both E
