Life, Literacy, and the Pursuit of Happiness is the first professional title dedicated to addressing a school’s reading culture with a focus on the needs of immigrant and refugee students and families—including learning their target language, English.
Dr. Vu presents the research-informed six conditions of culture—Commitment, Collection, Clock, Conversation, Connection, and Celebration—that create a school environment where immigrant and refugee students can thrive. Additionally, Dr. Vu provides practical strategies that most effectively support students who are new to this country.
