The Latino Generation: Voices of the New Americ...

Latinos are already the largest minority group in the United States, and experts estimate that by 2050, one out of three Americans will identify as Latino. Though their population and influence are steadily rising, stereotypes and misconceptions about Latinos remain, from the assumption that they refuse to learn English to questions of just how "American" they actually are. By presenting thirteen riveting oral histories of young, first-generation college students, Mario T. Garcia counters those long-held stereotypes and expands our understanding of what he terms "the Latino Generation." By allowing these young people to share their stories and struggles, Garcia reveals that these students and children of immigrants will be critical players in the next chapter of our nation's history. Collected over several years, the testimonies follow the history of the speakers in thought-provoking ways, reminding us that members of the Latino Generation are not merely a demographic group but rather real individuals, as American in their aspirations and loyalty as the members of any other ethnic group in the country.The complete list of narrators includes: Mariana Carreno, Tony Chiroldes, Monica Steuer, Adriana Sananes, Walter Krochmal, Rosie Berrido, Silvia Sierra, Luis Moreno, Martin Untrojb, Maria Cabezas, Lisa Ortiz, and Blanca Vasquez. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Blanca Camacho, Mariana Carreno, Tony Chiroldes, Monica Steuer, Adriana Sananes, Walter Krochmal, Rosie Berrido, Silvia Sierra.

Navigating the American Education System
51,99 € *

Navigating the American Education System: Four Latino Success Stories showcases the educational journey of four Latino/a men and women who navigated the American education system successfully. Their success is significant given the multiple and varied challenges that most Latinos/as encounter throughout the K-20 educational continuum. The purpose of this book is not only to show and tell, but to describe ordinary people attaining extraordinary results, who might also stand as good role models for the youngest- and fastest-growing group-Latinos/as-in this country. Researchers of this topic offer compelling statistics, such as the following projection: Out of 100 Latino/a students, a few more than 50 will finish high school; out of this number, five will enroll in college; and out of the original 100, less than one percent will complete a doctorate. While the causes of low academic attainment for Latinos may vary, including limited financial resources and cultural differences, the lack of Latino role models in K-20 education may be a significant contributing factor. The expression, "You can't be what you don't see" is especially applicable to Latino/a students who seldom see people like them in positions of prominence and power in educational environments. Across the country, and in particular in states with high numbers of Latino/a students, as the K-20 student body becomes darker, the teaching and decision-making personnel remain light-skinned. Consequently, the absence of role models for an increasing number of students of color may contribute to low levels of aspiration. Many attempts and existing literature regarding the achievement gap of students of color, especially Latinos/as, seem to have had modest or no impact, even when statistical analysis and sound rationales are provided. On the other hand, the stories included in this book offer an alternative that may have an impact and long-lasting effect in the lives of students of color. Story messages tend to stay longer with us and enable us to make sense of complex situations, such as education, culture, and personality traits-persistence, motivation, resilience. Consequently, the stories in this book become vehicles to learn from real-life examples the abstractions of education, home and school culture, and other factors that contribute to academic success. Furthermore, the stories encourage people to write, tell, and share experiences to address ongoing problems; invite change where change is needed; organize thoughts and seek meaningful solutions; invite us to become cognizant about how our emotions direct our thoughts and "move mountains"; enable us to discover undercurrents that hinder organizational communication; direct us to pay attention to the little things that matter and build trust; awaken the good in people through an invitational approach, as opposed to one that it's mandated; push us to avoid playing it safe and stick out our emotional necks when dealing with people; seek authentic voices to make room for new thinking; make time for people; and allow our voices to define the values we embrace.

The Team That Changed Baseball: Roberto Clement...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1947, major league baseball experienced its first measure of integration when the Brooklyn Dodgers brought Jackie Robinson to the National League. While Robinson's breakthrough opened the gates of opportunity for African Americans and other minority players, the process of integration proved slow and uneven. It was not until the 1960s that a handful of major league teams began to boast more than a few Black and Latino players. But the 1971 World Championship team enjoyed a full and complete level of integration, with half of its 25-man roster comprised of players of African American and Latino descent. That team was the Pittsburgh Pirates, managed by an old-time Irishman. In The Team That Changed Baseball: Roberto Clemente and the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates, veteran baseball writer Bruce Markusen tells the story of one of the most likable and significant teams in the history of professional sports. In addition to the fact that they fielded the first all-minority lineup in major league history, the 1971 Pirates are noteworthy for the team's inspiring individual performances, including those of future Hall of Famers Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, and Bill Mazeroski, and their remarkable World Series victory over the heavily favored Baltimore Orioles. But perhaps their greatest legacy is the team's influence on the future of baseball, inspiring later championship teams such as the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics to open their doors fully to all talented players, regardless of race, particularly in the new era of free agency. 1.

La Prussia (eBook, ePUB)
1,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

La Prussia (in latino Borussia, Prussia oppure Prutenia) è stata una regione storica, uno stato europeo e, a partire dal 1871, parte della Germania fino alla caduta del Terzo Reich, dopo il secondo conflitto mondiale. Il nome si riferiva in origine al territorio occupato dall'antica tribù baltica dei Prussi o Prussiani corrispondente all'attuale Lituania meridionale, all'exclave russa dell'Oblast' di Kaliningrad, e alla Polonia nord orientale; in seguito il nome Prussia identificò una delle regioni dell'Ordine teutonico e dal XVI secolo un ducato degli Hohenzollern, il feudo polacco lituano chiamato anche Prussia Ducale, che fu poi unito dal 1618 alla marca di Brandeburgo. In seguito al Trattato di Oliva (1660), preceduto dal trattato di Wehlau, alcune aree della Prussia ottennero la sovranità e nel 1701 si costituì il Regno di Prussia, comprendente tutti i territori degli Hohenzollern, che dal 1815 al 1866 fecero parte (tranne le province di Posnania, Prussia Orientale e Prussia Occidentale) della Confederazione germanica; dal 1867 fino al 1871 l'intero territorio entrò a far parte della Confederazione Tedesca del Nord. Dal 1871 al 1918 fu uno stato dell'Impero tedesco, in seguito cambiò denominazione in Stato Libero di Prussia sotto la Repubblica di Weimar e la Germania nazista, fino all'abolizione geografica e politica ufficiale nel 1947. Dal 1947 il termine Prussia non ha più un significato geografico o politico ma solo storico e culturale.

Jenni Rivera: The Incredible Story of a Warrior...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Like a blazing shooting star, Jenni Rivera lit up the lives of millions of people, yet the sky swept her away before her time. A complete, entertaining, and objective biography. Written by one of the country’s leading experts in Latin music. Jenni Rivera was the top-selling artist within the Regional Mexican music genre. With a weekly radio show, her own reality show, a makeup and clothing line, and her own foundation, she was at the height of her career and life. Everything she had conquered, with blood, sweat, tears, and smiles, happened, as she said, with God leading her by the hand. However her life, her dreams, and the joy she shared with so many came to a tragic end just before dawn on December 9, 2012. In Jenni Rivera: The Incredible Story of a Warrior Butterfly, Leila Cobo - pianist, TV host, and Executive Director for Latino content and programming at Billboard - brings us Jenni Rivera’s intimate and moving biography, reflecting on the party girl, the elegant woman, the great diva, the friend, the mother, and the grandmother. Discover the humble beginnings of Jenni’s life and career, as well as the emotional and sometimes turbulent moments that defined her persona and spirit. Like a candle blown out before her time, we not only lost the “Unforgettable One,” the “Queen of Queens,” the “Warrior Butterfly,” we also lost a brave woman who fearlessly faced life’s ups and downs to attain the happiness she so fervently wanted for herself and her family. With Jenni’s departure, we celebrate a shining legacy that will forever reverberate within every note of her voice. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alma Cuervo.
