Reaching Out to Latino Families of English Language Learners.

REACHING OUT TO LATINO FAMILIES OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS

ASSOCIATION FOR SUPERVISION & CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, $25.95

To combat the low performance and high dropout rate of Latino students, including English language learners, this book provides educators with solutions. The authors--David Campos, San Francisco Board of Supervisors: District 9; Rocio Delgado, assistant professor of languages and literacy at the State University of New York at Geneseo; and Mary Esther Soto Huerta, assistant professor of culture, literacy and language at Texas State University--address ways to develop home-to-school partnerships based on meaningful relationships with Latino parents, to become more familiar with the background knowledge of Latino students, and to create a more welcoming environment for these students.
