Cultural differences play a part in communication breakdowns between students and teachers, and only a complete understanding of the model that English instructors use when teaching writing gives us an insight into the reasons why. This book observes and analyzes the communication patterns of Latino students in an English course at the college level, closely observing the interaction between Latino students and the teacher, as well as between Latino students and other student groups in the class. Learning to Write as a Hostile Act for Latino Students concludes that cultural differences - and the resulting miscommunications - significantly contribute to the negative impressions Latino students have about the writing process and English courses. Understanding these differences is crucial to improving the teaching of writing to Latino and other minority students.

This qualitative study--informed by transformative narrative inquiry, critical race theory, and social capital theory-- explores Latino male students experiences of success in postsecondary education. Utilizing narrative inquiry methodology, the study documents and describes Latino college students stories of academic and social success, and the challenges they encountered as they navigated their educational journey. Data were collected using semi-structured individual interviews with each participant, a focus group session, and guided reflections. Participants shared their understanding of what counted as success for them and their experiences as Latino male college students. Five major themes emerged from the data analysis: (a) family centrality and peripherality, (b) self-determination, (c) pre-college influences, (d) college socialization, and (e) allies and community advocacy. Practical and public policy implications for future research are explored as well as suggestions for enhanced higher education practices that support and foster a campus environment conducive to the success of Latino male students.

This qualitative study examines the phenomenon of the undergraduate college experiences of 10 Latino migrant and seasonal farmworker students who participated in the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at California State University, Sacramento and went on to complete their bachelor's degree at the university. This study examines strategies used by this population to build the necessary social networks to navigate college life and successfully complete a bachelor's degree. The Culturally Adaptive Navigation Model for Latino Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker College Students, a new conceptual framework introduced in this study, identifies significant first-year and beyond first-year transitions, referred to as progressions, that this group of students experience throughout their undergraduate years. This study provides programmatic recommendations applicable to other similar program and institutions looking to increase Latino enrollment, retention and graduation.

Counterstorytelling Narratives of Latino Teenag...
76,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Counterstorytelling Narratives of Latino Teenage Boys presents an ethnographic portrait of the experiences and counterstories of nine Latino teenage boys representing different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds attending a high school in North Carolina. Using critical race theory (CRT), Latino critical theory (LatCrit), and Chicano/a epistemologies as a theoretical framework, the book unveils how differing layers of oppression shape the lives of these boys of color through the intersections of race, gender, and class. Contrary to majoritarian assumptions, cultural deficit models, and their teachers' low expectations, this research reveals how participants used their cultural capital as a foundation to develop resiliency. The findings in this book suggest that teachers, school administrators, and staff could benefit from a better understanding of Latino/a students' community cultural wealth as a fundamental element for these students' academic success. Counterstorytelling Narratives of Latino Teenage Boys will be an excellent resource for teachers, school administrators, college students, and pre-service teachers. It will be useful in courses in Latino/a studies in the United States, multicultural studies, race and education studies, social justice in education, race and gender studies, and social foundations in education.
