For our fourth intervention, we will be examining how to help Asian American students to experience “full success.” We use the term ‘full success,’ because most people look at the test scores and grades and assume that Asian American students are already fully successful. But their language scores are often low and their communication and social skills are of a level that they often face a glass ceiling with respect to promotions in the work place. Although we have discussed the concept of the “Model Minority,” bear in mind that that is not the problem of the intervention. The concept of Model Minority makes the needs of Asian American students difficult to see because people assume that they have no needs, problems or issues as it relates to education. Below are the presentations which covered these issues in class.Asian American2Korean Silence
