This article examines how first grade Latina/o emergent bilinguals interacted with a literacy curriculum that sought to value their transnational experiences and multilingual repertoires. Through a focus on the Laundromat, one of the transnational local spaces salient in the data, I explore how the children enacted what I refer to as literacies of interdependence—multilingual and multimodal literacy practices that both reflected and enacted their cultural practices of mutuality.

This book review found that Understanding and managing behaviors of children with psychological disorders: A reference for classroom teachers, edited by Kolbert and Crothers, provides a significant guide to evidence-based interventions that can be used to address some of the more complex psychological disorders that are presented by students in our schools. The best use of this text might be to use it as a guide to understanding specifics about a particular disorder and for finding interventions that might prove to be effective in addressing the behaviors of these students. Teachers and other education professionals and paraprofessionals might thus find this edited work to be very useful as a guide to their practice.

Grigorenko describe the literature related to the term dyslexia in terms of historical perspectives, cognitive sciences, neuroscience, and evaluation and assessment.
