Cultural conflict and adaptation : the case of Hmong children in American society by Enrique T Trueba( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last century, groups of Hmong people moved from southern China into Indochina, and, as war refugees, about 90,000 have come to the United States in recent years. This book examines the alienation and cultural conflicts faced at school by the children of a small group of Hmong (roughly 426 individuals in 90 households) who have settled in La Playa (California). Many Hmong children find themselves lost in school, ambivalent about their self-worth and identities. Although the La Playa district contains students from many ethnic groups, the arrival of the Hmong children beginning in about 1975 found school officials unprepared to serve this minority group. Language and cultural barriers have caused many students to be placed in classes for the learning disabled, although such placement may not be appropriate. Case studies of seven Indochinese students, three of whom were Hmong, illustrate the difficulties faced by these children caught between school and traditional worlds. Implications for educators of immigrant populations are discussed. A list of 189 references is included. (Sld)
Healing multicultural America : Mexican immigrants rise to power in rural California by Enrique T Trueba( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an ethnohistorical and ethnographic account of how several generations of Mexican immigrants became an integral part of the city of Woodland, California. These immigrants came to rural northern California as underclass agricultural workers, but, in the last 2 decades, have risen rapidly to political power through participation in the school board and various political, economic, and social institutions. A central tenet of the book is that the adjustment of immigrants depends largely upon their recognition of their own worth and potential contributions to American society. In this context, schools have special responsibilities: transmitting American cultural values that hold society together, and at the same time helping culturally diverse students pursue their own genuine ethnohistories. The success of Mexican Americans in Woodland is viewed as proof that the maintenance of the home language and culture produces strong Americans committed to a common good, the education of all. The chapters are: "The Dynamics of Cultural Transmission" (Henry T. Trueba); "Castification in Multicultural America" (Henry T. Trueba); "Woodland in Yolo County" (Yali Zou); "Chicanos in Politics: Learning to Participate and Organize" (Cirenio Rodriguez); "Political Gains of Chicano Community: Taking and Using Power" (Cirenio Rodriguez); "a School in Change: The Empowerment of Minority Teachers" (Jose Cintron); "Lessons Learned: The Healing of American Society" (Henry T. Trueba); "Cultural Therapy in Action" (Henry T. Trueba); and "Annotated References for Cultural Therapy" (Henry T. Trueba). An annotated bibliography contains 158 references on cultural therapy. This book contains references in each chapter, many data tables, photographs, and an index. (Sv)

Myth or reality : adaptive strategies of Asian Americans in California by Enrique T Trueba( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case studies and episodes are presented that indicate the adjustment of Asian American language minority students to the mainstream U.S. culture. Chapter 1 places the study in the context of macro- and micro-ethnographic research on immigrant and minority educational achievement. Chapter 2 compiles demographic data and background on each major Asian Pacific Islander group in California. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 examine critical educational issues in relation to the ethnohistorical and sociocultural contexts of Asian Pacific Islanders, integrating theoretical perspectives with case studies, and describing issues such as language proficiency and academic achievement in the light of cultural conflict. Chapter 6 provides recommendations by which teachers can strengthen the participation of Asian Pacific Islander students in their educational processes. Chapter 7 then returns to some theoretical perspectives introduced in Chapter 1, showing how the situation of Asian American and Pacific Islander students illustrates the importance of ethnohistorical and ethnographic approaches to improve student opportunities to learn. Sixteen tables and three maps present information about the Asian and Pacific Islander populations. (Contains 234 references.) (Sld)
Success or Failure? : Learning and the Language Minority Student by Enrique T Trueba( Book )

12 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For language minority children who have acquired English through another culture, opportunities to learn in U.S. schools are not equal, either at the point of entry or at any time thereafter. Children's ability to participate meaningfully in school learning activities is intimately linked to cognitive and social skills that presuppose specific and substantial cultural and linguistic knowledge. Those children who lack these skills stand out as low achievers in the early school years. This book examines some phases of the struggle of language minority children to participate in school learning activities. The chapters and their authors are the following: (1) The Ethnography of Schooling (H. Trueba); (2) Hispanic Achievement: Old Views and New Perspectives (C. Walker); (3) Saving Place and Marking Time: Some Aspects of the Social Lives of Three-Year-Old Children (J. Shultz and J. Theophano); (4) English Communicative Competence of Language Minority Children: Assessment and Treatment of Language "Impaired" Preschoolers (L. Cheng); (5) Contrasting Acculturation Patterns of Two Non-English-Speaking Preschoolers (J. Willett); (6) Learning Failure: Tests as Gatekeepers and the Culturally Different Child (D. Deyhle); (7) Learning Spanish and Classroom Dynamics: School Failure in a Guatemalan Maya Community (J. Richards); (8) Parent Perceptions of School: Supportive Environments for Children (C. Delgado-Gaitan); (9) Towards a Psychosocial Understanding of Hispanic Adaptation to American Schooling (M. Suarez-Orozco); (10) Becoming Marginal (R. Sinclair and W. Ghory); and (11) Social and Communicative Aspects of Language Proficiency in Low-Achieving Language Minority Students (R. Rueda). (Vm)

8 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do anthropologists have to say about dropouts? by Enrique T Trueba( Book )

18 editions published in 1989 in English and French and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethnic identity and power : cultural contexts of political action in school and society( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between ethnic identity and power has important consequences in a modern world that is changing rapidly through global immigration trends. Studies of ethnic/racial conflict of ethnic identity and power become necessarily studies of political power, social status, school achievement, and allocation of resources. The recognition of power by an ethnic group, however, creates a competition for control and a rivalry for power over public arenas, such as schools. In this context this book provides interesting and important insights into the dilemmas faced by immigrants and members of ethnic groups, by school personnel, and by policy makers. The first part of the book consists of comparative studies of ethnic identity. The second part focuses directly on some of the lessons learned from social science research on ethnic identification and the critical study of equity, with its implications for pedagogy. An interdisciplinary group of scholars offers profoundly honest and stimulating accounts of their struggles to decipher self-identification processes in various political contexts, as well as their personal reflections on the study of ethnicity

Power in education : the case of Miao university students and its significance for American culture by Enrique T Trueba( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This case study focuses on the empowerment of some of the poorest Miao peasants who eventually became university students and obtained high prestige as part of mainstream Chinese society. The data gathered shows the profound devotion and commitment Miao students had to their villages, families and community, and how they made enormous sacrifices in order to reach academic excellence in school, and with it honour and respect for their families and communities. The book covers the theoretical context of ethnic identity and academic achievement, the historical context of the Miao people in China, the testimonies of students and their professors relative to their university experiences, and a discussion of the meaning of ethnic identity for them. This volume emphasizes the role of ethnicity that motivates students to achieve, and thus the power of education in helping even the poorest peasants become self-confident and achieve highly in a competitive society."--Jacket
