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.

As the Latino population continues to rise in the United States and the number of Latino children entering the public schools increases, it is vital to consider the opportunities and the challenges they face learning a second language. This book analyzes the impact of the policies of the No Child Left Behind Act (2001) on the teaching and learning of 10 Latino English language learners (ELL) in an urban high school in Virginia. Learning a second language is a daunting task for immigrants transitioning to a new language and environment. Using ethnographic methodology, the researcher examined the interconnectedness of the federal policy (NCLB) with the pedagogy employed by faculty to support a learning climate for English language learners. Pedagogy that was built on respect, cultural identity, and critical thinking skills helped learners become actively engaged. The practices of caring teachers enabled them to serve as advocates, helped forge relationships of respect and trust, and encouraged students to succeed academically. The students voices said it themselves, ¡Qué nos dé una chanza! [Give us a chance!]

As technology expands and borders between countries blur, more and more societies including the United States are becoming multilingual. The rich diversity of many languages is felt particularly in education as increasing numbers of students whose home language is other than English enroll in school. This study presents the national, local, and state climates surrounding the education of two Latino children. Through this collaborative-ethnographic style research design, the study investigates the ways in which identities are constructed for or by Latino children as they use language at home and at school. The author explores classroom literacy events and the ways Latino children negotiate these events with their peers in an English dominant classroom. Results reveal the fluidity of identity across classroom curricular structures and in the home. Relationships with peers, adults, and family members contribute significantly to identity construction. The text is useful for researchers, students and educators working with culturally and linguistically diverse children, and those in the fields of second language learning, bilingualism, applied linguistics, and language learning.

¡Si se puede! First-generation, latino immigrant

Latino students face many challenges on higher education campuses. These challenges require faculty and staff to respond in direct and meaningful ways. Often families have different backgrounds, backgrounds that warrant serious research. Understanding the student as a whole person means understating their families and where they came from. Sometimes this means looking for and listening to their voice. College administrators need to understand the motivational components of incoming Latino students to serve them well. In this transformative autoethonographic study, I focused on understanding stories told by one first-generation, immigrant Latino family s journey through higher education, and their challenges and successes attaining a degree in predominantly White institutions.I interviewed my parents, three sisters, and five brothers, I collected a plethora of data to co-construct meaning of my family experiences. I discovered five salient themes through analysis of the data: resilience, transformative learning, role models, no parent support, and acculturation. Implications for practice in the area of first generation, immigrants, Latino students, and gender inequality were discuss
