At a time when Washington State is eighth in the nation among states receiving immigrants and sixth in receiving refugees, exploring the narratives that are constructed around immigrant experiences is important. Dr. Sleeter, a lauded scholar in multicultural education who is a major influence in multicultural teaching and scholarship, turns her focus to the ways in which we construct such narratives.
