Working with English Language Learners: Preservice Teachers and Photovoice
Graziano, Kevin J.
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v13 n1 2011
This study utilizes documentary photography and storytelling, photovoice, to identify the educational realities of 16 Hispanic English Language Learners from an urban elementary school in the Southwest. Reflections from preservice teachers who utilized photovoice to gather data from the English Language Learners of this study are also discussed. Three main themes emerged from English Language Learners' photographs and stories: (a) meaningful and fun instruction; (b) struggles and joys with literature, and (c) a sense of determination to excel and support others. Preservice teachers indicate they were positively affected by the enhanced learning environment of the study.
