Book Reviews of Reaching Out to Latino Families of English Language Learners
"The book gives lots of ideas of simple ways to connect with Latino families, such as assigning students to research famous Latinos or posting phrases around a school in both English and Spanish. …"The book also describes more substantial and coordinated efforts to engage Latino parents, such as identifying community resources to support parents and students and forming a task force to improve Latino engagement." —As first appeared on Edweek.org, Learning the Language, August 9, 2011.Reprinted with permission from Editorial Projects in Education. "Authors David Campos, Rocio Delgado, and Mary Esther Soto Huerta have put together a wonderful guide to help educators reach out to parents of students who are learning English. This book also explores why, culturally, Latino parents may seem hesitant about connecting with their kids' schools, and presents strategies educators can use to approach these parents effectively." —Excerpt originally appeared in School Library Journal's e-newsletter SLJTeen.Reprinted with permission from School Library Journal.
This two-book set provides practical insights into the effects of poverty on learning and what strategies teachers can use to better engage students in the face of these difficulties.
