Provides concrete examples of homework mentorship and positive academic interventions among immigrant families.

Winner of the 2019 Outstanding Book in Community Writing Award presented by the Coalition for Community Writing

Brokering Tareas examines a grassroots literacy mentoring program that connected immigrant parents with English language mentors who helped emerging bilingual children with homework and encouraged positive academic attitudes. Steven Alvarez gives an ethnographic account of literacies practices, language brokering, advocacy, community-building, and mentorship among Mexican-origin families at a neighborhood afterschool program in New York City. Alvarez argues that engaging literacy mentorship across languages can increase parental involvement and community engagement among immigrant families, and offers teachers and researchers possibilities for rethinking their own practices with the communities of their bilingual students.

Steven Alvarez is Assistant Professor of English at St. John's University.
