Video: “Immigrants In Our Community Are A Gift”

| 0 comments

Gail Desler – with the support of educators and students – has organized the fabulous Time Of Remembrance website documenting Japanese-American internment in World War Two, along with the Vietnam War.

Because of my work with Hmong refugees, I was honored to received an invitation to be interviewed as part of the project.

The full video is thirty-six minutes along. ELL teachers might find it useful, since I discuss a wide-ranging list of issues, including the importance of looking at our students through the eyes of assets and not deficits, inductive learning, concept attainment, parent engagement, professional development and many other items of possible interest.

If you go to the video at the Time of Remembrance website, it has an outline and summary of what’s covered in different sections of the video.

I’ve embedded the full video below. In addition, I’ve also embedded a short clip that Time Of Remembrance has created from the original full-length video:
