Reframing Venerable Standpoints about Language and Learning Differences: The Need for Research on The Literate Lives of Latina/o Language Minority Students
González, Taucia; Artiles, Alfredo J.
Journal of Multilingual Education Research, v6 Article 3 p9-34 2015
Despite the empirical attention that has been devoted to Latinas/os, language minority (LM) students, and students with learning disabilities (LD) as three separate subgroups, limited attention has been given to Latina/o students that fall into both LM "and" LD student categories. The literacy experiences of students living at the intersection of ethnic, language, and ability differences have been under-examined. This article calls for new insights into the literate lives of Latina/o LMs with LD, and posits that reframing cognitive models of literacy, sociocultural approaches, and resource pedagogies can offer a more comprehensive view of literacy and population complexity.
