Hopkins, Megan; Martinez-Wenzl, Mary; Aldana, Ursula S.; Gándara, Patricia
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v44 n3 p286-303 Sep 2013
Newcomer young men confront numerous obstacles that limit their chances for attainment and achievement. Using social and cultural capital frameworks and a case study methodology, this article examines how four Latino newcomer young men navigated an urban U.S. high school. It reveals how teachers and a counselor cultivated capital and how the young men leveraged this capital, thus challenging traditional depictions of Latino immigrant adolescents and highlighting the importance of belonging for these youth.
