Puerto Rican Students in U.S. Schools by Sonia Nieto

Book Description

This volume--the first edited book on the education of Puerto Ricans written primarily by Puerto Rican authors--focuses on the history and experiences of Puerto Rican students in the United States by addressing issues of identity, culture, ethnicity, language, gender, social activism, community involvement, and policy implications. It is the first book to both concentrate on the education of Puerto Ricans in particular, and to bring together in one volume, the major and emerging scholars who are developing cutting-edge scholarship in the field. Puerto Rican Students in U.S. Schools: * features both scholarly chapters (conceptual and research studies) and reflective essays, as well as two poems, * combines broad overview studies with classroom practice and social action, and * includes chapters that trace the history of the education of Puerto Ricans in U.S. schools in general and its history in New York City, and one chapter on return migrants.

Books By Author Sonia Nieto

Language, Culture, and Teaching by Sonia Nieto Language, Culture, and Teaching, Hardback (October 2009)

Offering information, insights, and motivation to teach students of diverse cultural, racial, and linguistic backgrounds, this text illustrates: real-life dilemmas about diversity that teachers face in their own classrooms; ideas about how language, culture, and teaching are linked; and, ways to engage with these ideas.

Dear Paulo by Sonia Nieto Dear Paulo, Paperback (July 2008)

From newly minted teachers terrified of facing their first day in the classroom to seasoned academics whose work has largely been inspired by Freire, this collection, accompanied by photographs of the author with some of the letter writers, is both a memorial and a call to action to work for social justice, praxis, and democracy.
