June 7, Summary: Stephanie Paterson, co-director of the Great Valley Writing Project, which is in the same Central California region where Gerald Campano taught and did his research, finds his book an inspiration in the ways it links inquiry, pedagogy, and social justice issues.
Immigrant Students and Literacy Teachers College Press,pages "What happens when I invite children from immigrant and refugee families to generate literacy practices from their own experiences? Reading, Writing, and Remembering is set, and for the past nine years I have worked at California State University, Stanislaus, a largely Hispanic-serving institution.
A great number of my students are first-generation college students, so I consider it my good fortune to have stumbled upon this text. His book is part memoir, part ethnography, and part educational treatise on the subject of immigrant students and literacy.
Like Rose he is critical of the dominant "deficit ideology" that marks so many English language learners, and like Behar, whom he cites, he is not afraid to speak autobiographically about his own educational experiences.
He offers a range of theoretical perspectives brought to life by the skillful way he juxtaposes cultural theory with vignettes of classroom life. The book has a three-part structure.
Part I "looks inward" as Campano examines his own identity, Part II includes case study vignettes of individual students, and in Part III, Campano discusses how his research has shaped his professional self-understanding.
Campano offers that "[p]erhaps more than anything else, the book may be a meditation on the significance of relationships. He offers a teacher-researcher's look at what Jonathan Kozol has called the "savage inequalities" of schools in lower socioeconomic urban areas read NWP's book review of Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools.

In these and other ways, Campano says, the conditions at this school resemble those of many urban schools and neighborhoods.
He presents a record of the lives of his former fifth grade students who, emblematic of so many others, too often remain invisible and too often slip through the educational cracks. But this book is no downer. Campano offers hope and the possibility of real change brought about from a pedagogy that enables teachers "to build on the rich experiences and legacies students bring to school.
Commenting again on the mural, he writes, "The apparently fixed categories on the mural downplay. One, Celso, like Campano a Filipino, writes of his deceased father's "secret box" with its family artifacts.
Campano sees this writing experience as beginning a process of recovery and creation that may help the boy, as a young Filipino "trying to negotiate the educational system and cope with life more generally. Later, in an essay in which she provides her classmates with a description of day-to-day Hmong culture, she also writes "I don't want people to make fun of me and my culture.
I know everyone wants to live in freedom. If someday my dreams come true the world that I live in will be radiant and never be dim with prejudice. This is what I believe in my heart.About this Page: Vivinette Dietsche, a technical writing student, compiled this excellent set of tips.
