Amistades: The Development of Relationships between Preservice Teachers and Latino Families
Sutterby, John A.; Rubin, Renee; Abrego, Michelle
School Community Journal, v17 n1 p77-94 Spr-Sum 2007
Preservice teachers from a Hispanic-serving university and Latino families reflected on their interactions during an after-school children's tutoring program conducted at an elementary school. This paper focuses on issues that both preservice teachers and families found important to communication and relationship building. These issues were valuing what families bring to the educational process, congruency in the interpretation of teacher roles, and the importance of language to communication and relationship building.
