In my opinion Frederick was looking ways to learn no matter the difficulties that they could bring to him, he was just focusing on learn. In the same way, I have to learn about the culture of United States that is way different from the culture I was used to back in my country, adapt myself to new language, and learn about new traditions.

But in the other hand in my case, I have to keep working hard for what I want the most and it’s become a legal citizen.

The experiences I have faced as a child of immigrants has made my goals vital contributions to my future. I have a passion to break the norms, have more immigrant representation, and strive in the STEM field, proving that I, a latina woman, can strive in this challenging
They often have many struggles financially and must adapt to their new life. Both the gang in The Outsiders called the Greasers and people immigrating to a new country have matching feelings and struggles in their lives. One similarity between the Greasers and immigrants’ experiences is feeling like they do not fit in. Immigrants are coming to a new country and need time to adjust. Therefore, they often feel like they do not belong in their new country.There is evidence revealing this in “Immigrants Share their Stories,” when an immigrant girl is asked if she feels like an American, and she responds, “Not really.” This quote shows that the girl feels like she does not belong in America, because she
Everyday, people all around the world are migrating from their home country to a new first world country for a better life for themselves and their children.

Bilingual Instruction is implemented in United States schools to afford students the opportunity to acquire the English slowly. Various programs are employed such as: dual language, immersion programs, and Fifty (McKeon, 1987). These programs have been implemented in some districts and schools in the United States allowing bilingual students the opportunity to learn a second language commensurate with their abilities. Some of these programs are successful; others fail due to the deficiencies in bilingual teacher preparation. One reason for inadequate bilingual teacher preparation is the fact that some teachers use the transmission as part of their teaching-learning process instead of applying correctly the bilingual program that the school has.

Wyman, McCarty, and Nicholas discussed this issue saying, “contemporary Indigenous youth commonly contend with lack of access to key language learning resources and learning environments. Their accumulating language learning opportunities, or lack thereof, also shape their communicative repertoires and language ideologies in complex ways. At the same time, youth show tremendous agency, innovation, and adaptation”. Contemporary indigenous youth must be more resourceful and find new ways to retain/learn their traditional language.
