Educating Latino Boys

An Asset-Based Approach

David Campos,

Educating Latino Boys: An Asset-Based Approach
 
 

Bring out the best in your male Latino students!

Largely misunderstood and in many cases underserved, Latino boys often miss out on key academic opportunities for achievement and success in school. Educator David Campos, a champion of higher education for Latino boys, provides proven strategies to promote their achievement.

Through powerful vignettes and helpful "What can I do next?" sections, Campos helps teachers and administrators understand the unique assets that this remarkable group of students brings into the school community and how to engage them as learners. Educating Latino Boys demonstrates how to:

  • Enhance student engagement and achievement by addressing Latino boys′ specific needs
  • Explore personal and school-wide beliefs to better understand how to serve this population
  • Develop strategies for motivating Latino boys to pursue higher education
  • Address unique challenges that Latino boys face both in the home and at school

Educating Latino Boys is an essential resource for improving educational opportunities and outcomes for this important population of students.

"With passionate concern and a probing insight drawn from experiences as both learner and educator, David Campos deconstructs the complex factors affecting the academic success of Latino boys in our schools today and compels us to embrace the need for change."
—Kathleen Palmer Cleveland, Author of Teaching Boys Who Struggle in School

"David Campos makes a persuasive case for the need to examine the lived experience of Latino boys and the implications for policy and practice. His many examples are powerful, imaginative, and supported by data."
—Valerie J. Janesick, Professor
University of South Florida
