Description:

In this book, Norma Gonzalez uses language as a window on the multiple levels of identity construction in children--as well as on the complexities of life in the borderlands--to explore language practices and discourse patterns of Mexican-origin mothers and the language socialization of their children. She shows how the unique discourses that result from the interplay of two cultures shape perceptions of self and community, and how they influence the ways in which children learn and families engage with their children's schools.
