A Socio-Culturally Responsive Pedagogical Approach To Advance Migrant Students Literacy, Alma D. Stevenson, Scott Beck

National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah

This presentation describes an innovative summer literacy program for intermediate and middle-level children of migrant farm workers that presented them with over two dozen children’s picture storybooks with migrancy themes, and systematically documented their responses to the books. Using these mentor texts and their responses as scaffolding, the students collaborated to create semi-autobiographical, illustrated narratives about growing up as migrants.
