Social Studies Pedagogy for Latino/a Newcomer Youth: Toward a Theory of Culturally and Linguistically Relevant Citizenship Education
Jaffee, Ashley Taylor
Theory and Research in Social Education, v44 n2 p147-183 2016
This study examines how teachers in 4 urban newcomer high schools conceptualized and implemented social studies education for Latino/a newcomer youth through an emerging framework of culturally and linguistically relevant citizenship education. Through a multi-site, collective case study design, the perspectives and decision making of social studies teachers' enacted pedagogy for Latino/a newcomer students were examined. The cross-case analysis of the 4 teachers' social studies pedagogy elicited 5 principles of culturally and linguistically relevant citizenship education. These principles include pedagogy of community; pedagogy of success; pedagogy of making cross-cultural connections; pedagogy of building a language of social studies; and pedagogy of community-based, participatory citizenship. Social studies educators should consider these principles when teaching culturally and linguistically diverse students.
