Book Summary: Esperanza Rising joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus content! Esperanza thought she'd always live a privileged life on her family's ranch in Mexico. She'd always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home filled with servants, and Mama, Papa, and Abuelita to care for her. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp. Esperanza isn't ready for the hard work, financial struggles brought on by the Great Depression, or lack of acceptance she now faces. When Mama gets sick and a strike for better working conditions threatens to uproot their new life, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances-because Mama's life, and her own, depend on it.

Book Summary: 'Au commencement, une simple requête maternelle. Celle que Cora fait à sa fille, Makina : elle doit partir à la recherche de son frère, de l'autre côté de la frontière, afin de lui transmettre un message. Voilà une mission que la jeune femme est la seule à pouvoir assumer. Mais pourquoi? La réponse est au bout du voyage, un périple qui s'effectuera en neuf étapes aussi actuelles qu'immémoriales. Franchir un fleuve avec un pneu pour radeau, transporter des paquets sans chercher à savoir ce qu'ils contiennent, vaincre la montagne d'obsidienne : telles sont quelques-unes des épreuves qui feront de Makina quelqu'un d'autre. À moins qu'elles ne lui permettent, au bout du compte, de devenir un peu plus elle-même. Quelque part, là-bas. Ou, définitivement, de l'autre côté. Comme dans son premier roman, Les Travaux du Royaume, Yuri Herrera n'écrit pas seulement sur le Mexique, sur la frontière et ses blessures. Ses personnages évoluent dans un univers qui lui est propre, entre fable, roman et poésie, là où s'entremêlent les mythes du passé et les déchirures de l'actualité la plus brûlante.' Laura Alcoba.

Book Summary: 'Il aurait aimé pouvoir lui dire, ne te fie pas aux apparences, je ne suis pas ce dont j’ai l’air, mais il ne pouvait parler à la vitre, il ne pouvait que s’éprendre de la lumière des vitres, laquelle, oui, pouvait la toucher, la pénétrer ; ils avaient la lumière en commun.' Tissées entre elles, les neuf nouvelles qui composent ce récit sont comme des fragments de l’âme des Mexicains. On y croise un homme d’affaires sans scrupule amoureux de sa belle-fille ; un chef cuisinier horrifié par la déliquescence culinaire aux États-Unis ; une vieille femme raciste qui emploie des bonnes étrangères ; un laveur de vitres immigré au sommet d’un building où travaille une Américaine. Tout semble à la fois les séparer et les rapprocher, hormis peut-être cette frontière de verre, celle qui sépare le Mexique des États-Unis.

Book Summary: Pura Belpré Award Winner A tender, transcendent, and meticulously crafted novel from Newbery Honoree, Pam Muñoz Ryan, and three-time Caldecott Honoree, Peter Sís! From the time he is a young boy, Neftalí hears the call of a mysterious voice. Even when the neighborhood children taunt him, and when his harsh, authoritarian father ridicules him, and when he doubts himself, Neftalí knows he cannot ignore the call. He listens and follows as it leads him under the canopy of the lush rain forest, into the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain on an inspiring voyage of self-discovery that will transform his life and, ultimately, the world. Combining elements of magical realism with biography, poetry, literary fiction, and transporting illustrations, Pam Muñoz Ryan and Peter Sís take readers on a rare journey of the heart and imagination as they explore the inspiring early life of the poet who became Pablo Neruda.

Book Summary: Sociocultural Contexts of Language and Literacy, Second Edition engages prospective and in-service teachers in learning about linguistically and culturally diverse students, and in using this knowledge to enrich literacy learning in classrooms and communities. The text is grounded in current research and theory that integrate sociocultural and constructivist concepts and perspectives and provide a framework teachers can use to develop strategies for teaching reading, writing, and thinking to diverse students. The focus on English literacy development does not imply advocacy for "English only" or ESL as the primary mode of literacy instruction. Rather, the authors take the position that learners need to develop literacy in their native language and that the concepts and skills learned in developing the native language create a foundation of strength from which students can develop English literacy. Part I introduces relevant research and language learning theories. Part II provides research reviews and information about literacy learning within specific culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The chapters in Part III challenge the reader to view the multiple social, intellectual, cultural, and language differences children bring to the classroom as an opportunity for learning and building on the diversity among students. Activities and suggested readings at the end of each chapter involve readers in reflection, observation, meaning making, and the construction of application processes for their new understandings. New in the Second Edition: *updated research and theory on multilingual and second language literacy; *a focus on the interpretation of these research findings to make them useful for teachers and teacher educators in understanding and articulating the research bases for literacy practices; *attention to current intensely debated issues, such as standards, the phonics movement, and high-stakes testing; and *new activities and suggested readings.
