Latino Students and Anglo-Mainstream Instructors: A Study of Classroom Communication.
Ybarra, Raul
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n2 p161-71 2000-2001
This study used ethnographic techniques to observe and analyze the communication patterns of two Latina college students in order to better understand the poor performance of many Latino students in college-level composition classes. Both students experienced frustration, anger, suspicion, and mistrust. They felt that school was trying to change them and the price of that change was too high. (DB)
