Reading Guide: Education, Gender and Generational Conflict among Khmer Refugees Nancy Smith-Hefner 1) What is the cultural-mismatch perspective? What is the ecological perspective ? What are some examples from the reading that can demonstrate both these concepts? Does Smith-Hefner believe that only one of these perspectives is useful when studying immigrant education? 2) According to Smith-Hefner, do Southeast Asian immigrants fit the stereotype of the "model minority?" Why or why not? 3) In what ways do traditional gender roles of Cambodia affect the educational achievement of Khmer girls in the US? That is, how are the contradictions in the way parents speak about the value of education, and the way they practice gender roles contributing to higher dropout rates? 4) Where does Smith-Hefner conduct her research? When did Cambodian immigrants settle in that area? What "wave" of immigration were these refugees said to be a part of?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
