The Emergence of Voice in Latino/a High School Students
©2003 Textbook 109 Pages
Series: Counterpoints, Volume 147
The subordination, suppression, and silencing of bilingual students’ voices and their communities by their educational system came under scrutiny at the end of the twentieth century. This book provides a forum for students’ voices by examining some of the factors that promote the silencing of voice in Latino/a high school students thus submersing them in the culture of silence. Its significance rests on the ability to draw out, explore, and document how Latino/a students perceive their cultural and linguistic reality; the presentation of curricular and methodological approaches and alternatives to promote the emergence and legitimatization of students’ voices; and its insight into and revelation of the ways shared teacher/student experiences, languages, and cultures can shape and impact both classroom relations and the emergence of voice.
