The Power Of The Teacher: Integrating Latino-Themed Literature In The K-12 Classroom, Ruth Quiroa, Susan Mcmahon, Barbara Evans, Francisco X. Alarcon

Western Suburban Literacy Initiative (WSLI) Conference

High quality books with culturally specific themes offer wonderful opportunities to access the background knowledge and personal connections of students with similar cultural heritage. However, the simple addition of the “right” multicultural books in the classroom is not enough to ensure that students engage in deep level responses involving culture. The teacher’s role in such conversations is critical and the focus of this session. Presenters will share examples from their work with students of Mexican origin and Mexican American-themed books published in the U.S. Participants will also have opportunities to take part in Book Clubs using Latino-themed children ...

How To Develop A ‘Culturally Aware’ Classroom Environment, Karla Gajarka

Western Suburban Literacy Initiative (WSLI) Conference

The student body in today’s school is becoming more diverse than ever before and the cultural and linguistic differences these students are bringing into the classrooms need to be carefully acknowledged and addressed! In this workshop participants will learn how they can make their classroom environment more ‘Culturally and Linguistically aware.’ Participants will benefit from this session by: (i) learning how to provide Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) students with a respectful and safe environment, and (ii) developing greater fluency on how to help ELL students feel more welcome.

Libros En Voz Alta/ Books Aloud, Patti Johanson

Western Suburban Literacy Initiative (WSLI) Conference

This presentation describes a classroom-based homework project involving students of Mexican-origin, in a bilingual first grade classroom and a modification of the project by a reading specialist involving second language learners in Title I programs. Students were given backpacks to take home bi-weekly on a rotating basis filled with a tape recorder, their “Family Journal,” a picture book in Spanish (later in English), and a recording of the text. After listening to a book on tape (or CD) and to oral and written prompts, students and family members wrote or drew responses in their Family Journals. During home visits and ...

A Web-Based Bulletin Board As Edward Soja's "Thirdspace": Esl And Lgbtq Students Claim Home Turf, Li Gaoqing, Patricia T. Price, Pauline Wilkins Burton, Reuben Hayslett

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

We argue that all knowledge begins with the body, the physical space it occupies and the territory an individual defines as “home.” The taken-for-granted nature of this reality is disrupted by the experience of moving into a new cultural space, whether this space is defined physically or in discursive terms. Cultural space is an extension of personal identity, both the physical circumstances through which individual consciousness is shaped, and the conceptual connections through which individuals construct a vantage point in the world. The students whose writing we examine were from an ESL class in first-year composition and an upper-division class ...
