EDU 587 – Home Visit – Myanmar

Posted on

As a project for EDU 587 we conducted a home visit with an immigrant family. My family is a Karen family from Myanmar who are an elderly couple in their 70’s. This video encompasses research regarding Myanmar, the information obtained from my home-visit, as well as guidance for schools to use in being more culturally responsive and ensuring their students’ success.
