"It's a Difference That Changes Us": An Alternative View of the Language and Literacy Learning Needs of Latina/o Students.
Jimenez, Robert T.
Reading Teacher, v54 n8 p736-42 May 2001
Suggests that one of the reasons that schools are not as successful supporting the literacy development of Latina/o students is that school literacy, whether it be in Spanish or English, envisions forms of literacy that these students do not recognize. Notes that low academic achievement for many Latina/o students is not due to a lack of motivation. (SG)
