Dual Language Education: Teaching and Leading i...
140,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary examination of dual language education for Latina/o English language learners (ELLs) in the United States, with a particular focus on the state of Texas and the U.S.-Mexico border. The book is broken into three parts. Part I examines how Latina/o ELLs have been historically underserved in public schools and how this has contributed to numerous educational inequities. Part II examines bilingualism, biliteracy, and dual language education as an effective model for addressing the inequities identified in Part I. Part III examines research on dual language education in a large urban school district, a high-performing elementary school that serves a high proportion of ELLs along the Texas-Mexico border, and best practices for principals and teachers. This volume explores the potential and realities of dual language education from a historical and social justice lens. Most importantly, the book shows how successful programs and schools need to address and align many related aspects in order to best serve emergent bilingual Latino/as: from preparing teachers and administrators, to understanding assessment and the impacts of financial inequities on bilingual learners.  Peter Sayer, The Ohio State University, USA

Working with Latino Youth

The Latino population in America is expanding at a rapid rate. Currently, Latinos represent more than 11 percent of the total U.S. population, and of that number, about 36 percent are children below the age of 18. Faced with tremendous pressure to assimilate into the American culture, many of these youths experience high rates of school failure, substance abuse, and other social problems. This makes the demand for culturally responsive intervention services for young Latinos greater than ever before. Working with Latino Youth offers counselors, teachers, social workers, therapists, and other professionals-no matter what their level of experience or cultural background-an accessible and practical guide for working effectively with Latino children and adolescents. This vital resource, which integrates development, culture, and psychological intervention, helps meet the challenge of addressing an array of culturally specific problems such as assimilation, discrimination, scholastic failure, pregnancy, substance abuse, and delinquency. The authors, Joan D. Koss-Chioino and Luis A. Vargas, present a dynamic new model for working with Latino youth that considers the individual within the context of their families, their communities, and their culture. To better understand how Latino children and adolescents are so profoundly influenced within the context of various settings, the authors offer a comprehensive examination of the four contextual levels: the microsystem level of family, the mesosystem and exosystem level of school and community, and the macrosystem level of cultural practices. Koss-Chioino and Vargas also present a wealth of research material and illustrative case studiesthat clearly demonstrate how to create treatment strategies that are culturally responsive and effective. Working with Latino Youth also addresses the critical issue of serving Latino children and adolescents in an era when public health budgets are shrinking and mental hea

As Américas do Sul
187,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume is devoted to an examination of the vast range of relations existing between Brazil and its Hispano-American neighbours. The Latin American context in which Brazil is embedded is determined by a multifarious network of bi- and multi-lateral relations that has been given little attention by scholars so far. The volume sets out to make a contribution to a closer engagement with the intercultural dynamics informing those relations. The cross-disciplinary aspect is very marked. Alongside articles from representatives of literary and film studies, philosophy, and the social and political sciences, there are also studies illuminating theological, historical, and anthropological aspects. Discutir as múltiplas relações do Brasil com os países hispano-americanos é o objetivo deste volume. O Brasil situa-se em um contexto latino-americano que é constituído por uma rede de intercâmbios diversificada, que curiosamente tende a passar desapercebida. O presente volume pretende contribuir para a reflexão desta dinâmica intercultural a partir de uma proposta interdisciplinar. As Américas do Sul são discutidas, assim, através de uma variedade de enfoques que envolvem as seguintes áreas: crítica literária e cinematográfica, filosofia, ciências sociais e políticas, antropologia, história e teologia. história e teologia.

Trickster Lives
48,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

At once criminal and savior, clown and creator, antagonist and mediator, the character of trickster has made frequent appearances in works by writers the world over. As Margaret Atwood observed, trickster gods 'stand where the door swings open on its hinges and the horizon expands; they operate where things are joined together and, thus, can also fall apart.' A shaping force in American literature, trickster has appeared in such characters as Huckleberry Finn, Rinehart, Sula, and Nanapush. Usually a figure both culturally specific and transcendent, trickster leads the way to the unconscious, the concealed, and the seemingly unattainable. 'Trickster Lives' offers thirteen new and challenging interpretations of trickster in American writing, including essays on works by African American, Native American, Pacific Rim, and Latino writers, as well as an examination of trickster politics. This innovative collection of work conveys the trickster's unmistakable imprint on the modern world.
