Cooperative learning, culturally responsive teaching, extended dialogue between teachers and students, and technology-enriched instruction are some of the educational strategies that research shows have been effective with Hispanic students, concludes a report by the Washington-based National Education Association.

The report summarizes research on Hispanic students and discussions that occurred at a summit about the education of Hispanics convened in March by the union and the League of United Latin American Citizens. Summit participants raised three primary points, the report says, about teaching Hispanic students: Relationships are important; student strengths, not deficits, should be stressed; and many Hispanics don’t see schools as relevant or committed to teaching their children.

“A Report on the Status of Hispanics in Education: Overcoming a History of Neglect” is available from the National Education Association.
