Outcome Results from "Yo Veo": A Visual Intervention for Teachers Working with Immigrant Latino/Latina Students
Chapman, Mimi V.; Hall, William J.
Research on Social Work Practice, v26 n2 p180-188 Mar 2016
Objective: This study reports results from the outcome evaluation of "Yo Veo," a visual intervention with schoolteachers, which structures conversations about challenges that teachers face teaching Latino/Latina immigrant students. Method: The intervention was delivered to teachers at two middle schools in the southeastern United States, one with a large and another with a growing proportion of Latino/Latina students. Questionnaire data were collected from 46 teachers at baseline, posttest, and 9-month follow-up. Measures were adapted at the second school as part of the pilot process. Results: Results show improvements in teachers' scores on cultural competency, multicultural teaching practices, positive classroom management strategies, beliefs about parental involvement, mental health competency, knowledge of barriers to mental health service access, and attitudes toward undocumented immigrants. Measures on which there was no change or changes in the negative direction are also discussed. Conclusions: "Yo Veo" is a promising approach for promoting awareness, attitudes, and understanding among teachers working with Latino/Latina immigrant students and families. Further research is required to prepare the intervention for wider testing and dissemination.
