Abstract

Ahmed arrived in Pennsylvania from a Somali refugee camp at age 13, speaking minimal English. He was placed in a regular 7th grade classroom for large portions of his school day, understanding very little. He received 30 minutes of English as a second language daily, but the other students were more advanced, and the teacher had little time to help him.
