Dora's Program: A Constructively Marginalized Paraeducator and Her Developmental Biliteracy Program
Lucero, Audrey
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v41 n2 p126-143 Jun 2010
This article discusses findings from a case study of one elementary bilingual paraeducator, highlighting how the recognition of situated cultural capital enabled her to move from traditional to constructive marginality. I argue that her actions, the actions of others, and conditions within the school enabled her to use culturally relevant funds of knowledge in working with language-minority children. I conclude that the resources paraeducators bring can be harnessed when stakeholders are committed to doing so.
