Other Countries' Literacies: What U.S. Educators Can Learn from Mexican Schools.
Smith, Patrick H.; Jimenez, Robert T.; Martinez-Leon, Natalia
Reading Teacher, v56 n8 p772-81 May 2003
Examines language and literacy practices in first- and fourth-grade classrooms in two schools in a small town in central Mexico. Explores how educators can expand their own understanding of reading and writing--and how to teach them--by considering the literacy practices of other countries. Uses Mexico, the country of origin of many students and families in U.S. schools, as a case example to illustrate the authors' ideas. (SG)
