Mi padre : Mexican immigrant fathers and their children's education

Image of item
Mi Padre centers on the promise of parent involvement practices that build upon the range of linguistic and sociocultural resources that Latin immigrant students and their families bring to school. Through the experiences of Mexican immigrant fathers and their children, this book illustrates the need for humanizing family engagement. Gallo identifies the many ways these fathers contribute to their children's education and how educators can communicate more effectively with immigrant families. Mi Padre also shows the consequences of deportation-based immigration policies on elementary school education and offers strategies for supporting students and their families in the classroom. The author stresses the importance of learning from and with families and offers practical suggestions for how to build relationships with all caregivers as a counterpractice to the one-size-fits-all schooling that many teachers, students, and families experience today. Book features: provides practical approaches for drawing on Latin@ families' educational resources for school-based learning; depicts the consequences of immigration policies on children, families, and elementary school teachers; draws on ethnographic data collected during a period of strong anti-immigrant sentiment in a Pennsylvania town. -- Provided by publisher.
