Making A Difference: Literacy in Calca

A Congruent Pedagogical Home

By Sabina Rak Neugebauer and Rachel Currie-Rubin

“¿Por qué David esta buscando a su madre?” (Why is David looking for his mom?)

“Porqué él no sabe donde vive, quizás su madre este en la casa” (Because he doesn’t know where he lives, maybe his mother is in the house), responds Yeferson.
