This set includes two audiocassettes and a teacher's guide. The cassettes have excerpts from interviews of women immigrants from a variety of countries. Health is touched on occasionally in the stories. The first cassette has two parts, "No Time for Home" and "Here, Everything is Different." The second cassette includes discussions of domestic violence; mothers and daughters; employment; lesbian immigrants; and race, color and identity. The teacher's guide includes suggestions for activities to use before, during, and after listening to the tapes. The activities are writing and processing exercises that provoke thoughtful discussion and can be adapted to ESOL, ABE, or college-level classes. The Teacher's Guide includes sections on Facilitating Rich Discussions, and Notes on the Uses of Writing, as well as suggested readings.
