Setting out from her classroom, Jessica Lander, Ed.M.'15, takes the reader on a powerful and urgent journey—told through captivating stories of the past, the present, and the personal—to understand what it takes for immigrant students to become Americans. Lander brings to life historic struggles to improve immigrant education, visits innovative classrooms across the country, and shares inspiring stories of her own students' immigrant journeys and how they created their own American identities. Together, the stories and insights chart a course for educators and policy makers—and for everyone who cares about America’s future. Making Americans is a landmark book, providing a clear vision for how schools can help nurture a sense of belonging in newcomers, with benefits for all students.

Sarah Dryden-Peterson, Ed.D.'09, Associate Professor of Education at HGSE, will introduce the event.  

This event is open to the public!
