Helping newcomer youth navigate the process of school integration (CES)
Immigrating to Canada and entering a new school system is an enormous task for newcomer youth. The process of school integration captures the adjustment of newcomer youth across all aspects of student life – both inside and outside the school context – including English Language Leaning, academic performance, classroom behaviour, social networking, identify negotiation, emotional and familial wellbeing, involvement in school life, and understanding of the educational system. This presentation will focus on strategies to help newcomer youth navigate the numerous social-emotional challenges they face as they integrate into a new school setting.
