Hispanic and Latino students now represent the largest ethnic group educated in the United States public school system. That means the ability to successfully educate Hispanic and Latino students, from pre-kindergarten to graduate school, is now of primary importance to the future of the United States. Under this critical context, Jaime Castellano's Educating Hispanic/Latino Students: Opening Doors to Hope, Promise, and Possibility arrives at the perfect moment to help educators better understand the Hispanic and Latino student demographic, and more importantly, uncover the strategies and implementation practices to better educate this burgeoning population. Topics covered include: The influence of poverty on the education of Hispanic/Latino students The challenge of identity when educating Hispanic/Latino students Educating the "whole child" and what this means for Hispanic/Latino students Engaging America's Hispanic/Latino parents and families Supporting Hispanic/Latino students through curriculum, instruction, and assessment By recognizing that Hispanic and Latino students are vital linguistic, economic, and social resources to our society, Castellano's Hispanic/Latino Students: Opening Doors to Hope, Promise, and Possibility is rooted in the firm belief that educational equity, access, and higher expectations should be the driving force to provide Hispanic and Latino students a quality education that prepares them for a successful and meaningful future.

As educators and legislators across the country debate how to improve public schools, the most vital factor often disappears from the equation—the relationship between the teacher and the student. According to veteran educators Rita and Marco Portales, this relationship is the central issue in the education of students, especially Latino/a students who often face serious barriers to school success because of the legacy of racism, insufficient English-language skills, and cultural differences with the educational establishment. To break down these barriers and help Latino/a students acquire a quality education, the Portaleses focus attention on the teacher-student relationship and offer a proven method that teachers can use to strengthen the print and oral skills of their students. They begin by analyzing the reasons why schools too often fail to educate Latino/a students, using eloquent comments from young Latinos/as and their parents to confirm how important the teacher-student relationship is to the student's success. Then they show how all educational stakeholders—teachers, administrators, state education agencies, legislators, and parents—can work together to facilitate the teacher-student relationship and improve student education. By demonstrating how teachers can improve students' reading, critical thinking, writing, and oral communication skills across the curriculum, they argue that learning can be made more relevant for students, keeping their interest levels high while preparing them for academically competitive colleges.

This volume focuses on both the background causes that place students "at risk" and specific strategies that have been shown to help address students' academic risk. Various chapters cover such key topics as the extent and consequences of risk in U.S. education, resiliency among at-risk students, the effectiveness of various interventions at reducing risk, and systemic supports for overcoming educational risk. Issues in the educating of African American, Hispanic, and second-language-learning students are each discussed, as well as Title I, technology education, and professional development in high-poverty contexts.

In both diagnostic procedures and in program prescriptions, this book attempts to deal with the problem of the Hispanic child who speaks no Spanish and who, in fact, may be discouraged from learning Spanish by parents who mistakenly feel they are helping the child make a quicker transition to the dominant culture. The first three chapters present some curriculum and instructional methods that can and should be used with groups of Hispanic children who speak English. In the first chapter, three fundamental premises are given: (1) curricula designed for middle-class native English-speaking children are not conducive to teaching Hispanic children; (2) English-speaking Hispanic students may not be proficient enough to succeed in the standard curriculum; and (3) instructional personnel need to develop a curriculum appropriate for English-speaking Hispanic children. In chapter two, current research is used to expose and discredit myths and stereotypes about Hispanic children and in chapter three, suggestions are offered to teachers/supervisors for becoming better acquainted with the needs and school problems of Latino students. An annotated bibliography is divided into four parts: Mexican American (Chicano), Puerto Rican, Latin American, and Cuban. Sources are listed in three areas: History and Culture, Contributors to Present Society, and Imaginative Literature. (Author/AN)
