Immigration Essays Course Adoption

Adopting Baker’s Immigration Essays offered my faculty a variety of ways to engage their students in discussions of diversity, gentrification, and, obviously, immigration. Because of the structure of the book, faculty had the instructional agency to select essays within the text that best fit the pedagogical approach of their classroom.” Dr. Jenn Stewart, Assistant Professor and Director of Composition at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
