Covid 19: Experiences of Immigrant Students Amidst Covid 19: A Mixed-Method Investigation

Grants and Contracts Details


Immigrant adolescents have to balance school, home, and work responsibilities. This has made learning from home particularly challenging for immigrant students amidst the pandemic. This study will focus on immigrant students’ socio-emotional experience while attending school during COVID-19. The socio-emotional experience of immigrant students can differ based on the intersections of the different demographic factors that define their identity (e.g., race, gender, English proficiency). Adopting a person-centric approach, we will identify differences in immigrant students’ socio-emotional experience by their unique identity profile. In particular, we will focus on three aspects of their socio-emotional experience: relatedness, motivation, and psychological well-being. Five-hundred students and ten English Language Learner teachers from a US high school with a substantial immigrant student population will participate in the study during the academic year 2021-2022. A convergent mixed method research design will be used to collect data through surveys and in-depth interviews. The findings will have implications for creating supportive environments for multicultural classrooms.
