CTN PEER MENTORS CONTRIBUTE TO BOOK SUPPORTING LATINO SUCCESS
The recently published book, High-Achieving Latino Students: Successful Pathways Toward College and Beyond, contains contributions by CTN peer mentors Victor Saenz, Laura Rendon and Amaury Nora. These can be found in Parts II and III of the book and are titled “Científicos Latinxs: Uncovering the Counter Story of Success in STEM, Laura Rendón, Amaury Nora and “From Surviving to Thriving: Critical Perspectives on High-Achieving Latino Undergraduate Males at Selective Universities,” Victor Saenz.
The book “addresses a long-standing need for a book that focuses on the success, not failure, of Latino students. While much of the existing research works from a deficit lens, this book uses a strength-based approach to support Latino achievement. Bringing together researchers and practitioners, this unique book provides research-based recommendations from early to later school years on “what works” for supporting high achievement.” (https://www.infoagepub.com/products/High-Achieving-Latino-Students)
