An Immigrant Heritage Month Program:  How does the acquisition of English affect the immigrant experience in the U.S., especially across generations?  How is assimilation in all aspects of life affected by the language one speaks?  During the teacher workshop, we will consider how language acquisition affects life outcomes and the role schools have played in English language learning.  Leave with knowledge and resources for putting this hot topic into a historical context for students.
