Abstract

This is a qualitative case study that attempts to document the challenges immigrant students faced in schools where teachers are not prepared for them. Hopefully, the information this study provides will help stakeholders, policy makers, administrators and teachers better understand the culture and linguistic background, and school experiences of Mexican immigrant students. It addresses the efforts a science teacher makes to integrate his content area instruction of science with the students' particular English language needs to complete tasks in 9th grade science.
