The Migrant Library - Literature on Migrants
The Geneseo Migrant Center sponsors a bibliographic library which serves as an introduction to migrant farmworker literature, both fiction and non-fiction. These resources may be useful inside the classroom, for research or to increase understanding of the migrant experience in other areas. As of May, 2008 there were 170 authors and 192 books listed.
The web site for the Geneseo Migrant Center is a great place to learn more about migrants and services offered to them.
The Geneseo Migrant Center also hosts the National PASS Center.
What is PASS?
The Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) Program consists of self-contained, semi-independent study courses which enable students to earn secondary-level academic credits. Participating students generally take these courses in order to make up courses, meet graduation requirements or cope with scheduling difficulties. PASS courses are designed to parallel regular academic courses offered in most schools. Each PASS course is competency-based and learner-centered, thus allowing the student to progress through five activity books and accompanying tests at his or her own pace. Because of this structure, students are able to continue course work as they move from district to district or even state to state.
