Translating Childhoods: Immigrant Youth, Language and Culture

Author(s): Marjorie Faulstich Orellana



Drawing from ethnographic data and a decade of research in three immigrant communities, this book examines the work that the children of immigrants do using their knowledge of two languages to speak, read, write, listen and do things for their families. The sample chapter looks at how this work plays out in parent-teacher conferences.
