Our students come from a rich Hispanic background. They have rich cultural and language experiences that can be used to support their literacy growth. With these novels I will be able to build on their strong language and culture to enhance and extend their literacy skills and fluency.
Culturally relevant teaching connects students' cultures, languages, and life experiences with what they learn in school.
These connections help students access rigorous curriculum and develop higher-level academic skills.
This class set of novels will allow all students access to text in their native language so they can make connections and extend their learning experiences.
