Me Puede Ensenar? A Guide to Educating Hispanic/Latino

Students in Catholic High Schools. According to Instituto Cervantes (2017), there are more Spanish speakers living in the United States than there are Spanish speakers in Spain. Tragically, many Spanish-speaking English Language Learners (ELLs) are failing in American schools (Huerta, Tong, Irby, & Lara-Alecio, 2016; Lichon & Dees, 2018). Yet, Catholic schools have demonstrated remarkable success with Hispanic/Latino students. In fact, Hispanic/Latino students who attend Catholic schools are 42% more likely to graduate from high school and two-and-a-half times more likely to graduate college than their peers in public schools (Lichon & Dees, 2017; Notre Dame Task Force, 2009). Why? What are Catholic schools doing to achieve such a high level of success? Based upon extensive research, Me Puede Enseñar uncovers important ideas on how educators can better support their Hispanic/Latino ELL students, assist the families of these students, and build internal structures for academic, cultural, and spiritual practices that best serve this student population. This book is a must read for all educators who work with Hispanic/Latino students.
