We use the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002, a nationally representative sample of high school sophomores, to examine patterns of social engagement in friendships and extracurricular activities among racial/ethnic minorities and immigrant adolescents. Results show that racial/ethnic minority adolescents, as well as first- and second-generation adolescents, are less engaged in friendships than their third-generation White counterparts, and there is no clear pattern of advantage or disadvantage in extracurricular activity participation.

In evaluating the deleterious effects of missing in-school time, empirical research has almost exclusively focused on absences, and the scant amount of empirical literature on tardiness has focused on academic achievement.

The synthesis of the current literature presented in this paper provides an important starting point for identifying the knowledge that regular classroom teachers will need to develop in order to address the learning needs of their ELL students. The paper identifies Disciplinary Linguistic Knowledge (DLK) as a specialized knowledge base needed by teachers and teacher educators and proposes that DLK be required in order to model for ELLs how language is used to communicate meaning and to engage them in disciplinary discourse.
