Abstract:My final chapter attempted to relate my findings to the existing literature review, and also explained how the findings interacted with the sociocultural framework. In general, the goals and experiences of my participating families appeared to resemble those of many other immigrants from other parts of the world living in the U.S. Theoretically, the findings seemed to fit in quite well with the various sociocultural theories discussed.
