A GREAT RESOURCE FOR ENGLISH AND SOCIAL STUDIES CLASSES, ADULT LEARNERS, ‘ENGLISH LEARNER’ CLASSROOMS, AND BOOK CLUBS!
Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a Minneapolis High School is a unique collection of thirty personal essays written by students from Wellstone International High School. Coming from thirteen different countries, these young people share stories of family, school, change, and dreams. The broad range of experiences and the honesty with which they tell their stories are captured here with inspiring clarity. Although their reasons for immigrating are vast, a common thread unties them; despite tremendous tribulation, these young people continue to work toward the futures of which they dream.
- 30 personal essays of immigrant youth from 12 countries
- Full-color portraits
- Links to digital stories on the Green Card Voices Website
- Excerpt from Act4Change: Green Card Voices Study Guide
