An essential guide for using Latino literature in the classroom In the previous generation of secondary curriculum, the texts read in classes reflected a more limited reality. Today, traditional characters like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are joined by Trino Olivares and Consuelo Harburton. In an increasingly multicultural global community, teachers are striving to bring more culturally responsive materials to their classrooms. In this trailblazing text, Joan Parker Webster provides instructors with the basic tools to teach young adults Hispanic literature using selected texts and tailored methods for implementation in classes made up of culturally diverse students. She has chosen exemplary narrative works from some of the most respected authors of Latino literature. Teaching Through Culture introduces teachers to key texts while providing ancilliary information and methods to make teaching and reading experiences effective. A culturally responsive teacher builds on students' prior knowledge and employs appropriate styles of communication and interaction to engage students in learning. Parker Webster affirms that the use of texts that provide cultural connections is the most successful way to actively engage diverse learners and improve their comprehension. When students can see themselves in the stories they read, they encounter familiar ideas and situations, which lessen an often overwhelming and intimidating school environment.
