Latino Emergent Bilingual Youth in High Schools: Transcaring Strategies for Academic Success
García, Ofelia; Woodley, Heather Homonoff; Flores, Nelson; Chu, Haiwen
Urban Education, v48 n6 p798-827 Nov 2013
This article explores the results of a study of Latino youth in New York City public high schools. We propose that the common element among the schools is what we call here "transcaring," an overarching culture of care that allows for the creation of third spaces within school, transcending traditional dichotomies around language, culture, place, and measurement found in many U.S. schools. We identify the different threads that make up transcaring strategies--translanguaging, transculturación, transcollaboration and transactions through dynamic assessments--focusing on each of its components by drawing examples from our data.
