Using ESL Students' First Language to Promote College Success: Sneaking the Mother Tongue through the Backdoor


Add your own review!

Overview

Emerging from a critical analysis of the glocal power of English and how it relates to academic literacy and culturally responsive pedagogy, this book presents translanguaging strategies for using ESL students' mother tongue as a resource for academic literacy acquisition and college success. Parmegiani offers a strong counterpoint to the English-only movement in the United States. Grounded in a case study of a learning community linking Spanish and English academic writing courses, he demonstrates that a mother tongue-based pedagogical intervention and the strategic use of minority home languages can promote English language acquisition and academic success.

Reviews

I learned so much by reading this book. The carefulness with which it establishes the background and contexts for the learning community, the way in which it situates the specificity of the population, yet fanned back out again to encompass many possible teaching scenarios and contexts--are all remarkable. I feel I learned so much about my field as well as about the author, his experience, and his students. This is a book! This book greatly impresses me, no less, for how it blends genres practically seamlessly. I believe the skilled use of personal voice and narrative make that blending work. Parmegiani's explanation of how he culled from the data of student input in light of coding theory, including limits and cautions, is truly a model for others in composition-rhetoric looking to do the same. I loved how this book tells the story getting the Spanish-English learning community program together. Sharing the first steps of a new or intricate process is crucial for establishing credibility and trust--while also adding great narrative interest. --Hope Parisi, Professor of English, Kingsborough Community College (CUNY) and Co-editor, The Journal of Basic Writing
