Creating Literacy Communities as Pathways to Student Success

Equity and Access for Latina Students in STEM
Author:

"Creating Literacy Communities as Pathways to Student Success" offers a model for using literacy as a pathway for secondary students to explore fields from which they are often systematically excluded. In particular, this volume demonstrates how access for young Latina students to STEM-related fields can be bolstered through engagement with mentors in writing and reading programs. Written for pre- and in-service teachers, as well as scholars across disciplines, this book aims to re-conceptualize the ways in which writing can best serve ethnically and linguistically diverse students, especially girls.
