The Best for Our Children: Critical Perspectives on Literacy for Latino Students

In this intriguing text, Reyes and Halcón present the perspectives of prominent Latino researchers and educators on issues related to literacy development for PreK-12 Latino students. The focus throughout is on the critical need for learning environments in which Latino students' culture and language are respected and nurtured. What makes this volume unique is that each of the authors can draw upon his or her own personal experience in discussing such topics as bilingualism and biliteracy, engaging adolescent readers, and academic underachievement.
