I am currently teaching math and science to 15 immigrant students (14 of them are Hispanic) who have been out of school in their own countries for at least 3 years and who have limited literacy in their own language. Two of them are 16 and just now learning to read. Since research shows that people best learn to read in their spoken language, I would like to build a classroom library of Spanish science books to complement our science studies. At present I have some English supplementary science books which they enjoy looking at, but if they could read them, I know it would help them as they learn scientific concepts in class. These books will also be available to other bilingual students in our school.
