by Victor Villasenor, Burro Genius Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Burro Genius books, De pie frente al público, Victor Villaseñor miró al grupo de maestros sentados frente a él, y su mente se llenó de recuerdos de infancia llenos de humillación y abuso por parte de sus profesores. Se sintió enfurecer. Con el corazón en la mano, comenzó a hablar de esos abusos. Y cuando terminó, para su gran sorpresa, encontró a todos los profesores de pie aplau-diéndolo enfáticamente. Muchas de las personas en el público no lograban contener sus lágrimas.Así comienzan las conmovedoras y apasionadas memorias de Victor Villaseñor. A pesar de ser muy talentoso e imaginativo desde muy niño, tuvo que vivir con una dificultad de aprendizaje (no fue sino hasta los 44 años de edad que fue diagnosticado con un caso grave de dislexia), y la frustración de ser latino en una escuela americana en la que sólo se hablaba inglés. A pesar de los profesores que lo maltrataban porque no podía hablar inglés, Villaseñor se aferró a su sueño de un día convertirse en escritor. Hoy en día, es considerado uno de los autores más importantes de nuestra era.
by Luciana C. De Oliveira, L2 Writing In Secondary Classrooms Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download L2 Writing In Secondary Classrooms books, Second language writers and the teaching of writing at the secondary level have received little attention compared with other skills such as reading. Addressing this gap, this volume uniquely looks at both adolescent L2 writing and the preparation of secondary teachers to work with this population of students. Part I, on adolescent L2 writers, includes case studies looking at their literacy identities, their trajectories in mainstream content area classes, and their transition from high school to college. Part II looks at academic issues. The focus in Part III is L2 writing teacher education. Taking a theoretically eclectic approach that can support a variety of pedagogies, this book contributes significantly to understanding adolescent second language writers and to educating teachers to address these students' specific needs.

by Maria Morales, My Graduation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download My Graduation books, I started writing my book the first day that I started taking classes at College of the Canyons. I didn't write the book in printing, I wrote in my heart. The title of my book is My Graduation, because I finished the day I graduated. I took my first class in the spring semester of 1989, my final class in the spring semester of 2005. My book talks about my struggles to get an education while raising a family, as well as the nostalgia for my old country and my love for my new country. In my book, I invite people to read and write. I also want to send a message of love and hope for a better life. How I wish that every immigrant learns English as soon as they come to this country. How I wish that every woman would achieve a college education. Yes, it is hard, but not impossible. The young woman that came to this country, with a big desire of an education, finally did it.
