This book provides teachers with an understanding of how to teach Hispanic students effectively. After an overview of demographics and the role of national origins and cultural background in teaching and learning, the book examines the importance of teachers' understanding of their own attitudes about Hispanic students, and looks at language in the Hispanic community, implications of language differences in the classroom, cultural sensitivity, and Hispanic families. Lists of children's and adults' books, movies, videos, and Web sites are included. Jones is affiliated with the University of Arizona. Fuller is affiliated with the University of North Dakota.
