Caravantes offers a unique solution to this growing problem: Selective Cultural Adoption (SCA). SCA is a method by which Latinos can retain certain meaningful characteristics of their culture and, at the same time, adopt key aspects of the Anglo-American culture that will help them succeed, especially in the area of education. This hands-on book illustrates how teachers and parents can improve the educational experience of young Latinos in America.--From publisher description."@en ;
