What is Jim Cummins' "Intervention Model" all about. Present the elements of this model and in your opinion, can it be successful in reversing the history of failure the Puerto Rican children have experienced in the American schools? Illustrate some of the elements of this model, such as cultural and linguistic incorporation, community participation and critical/transformative pedagogy through "El Puente" instructional practices and curriculum (De Jesus, Freire). How does "El Puente" incorporates the language and culture of the community in the school environment? How does "El Puente" promotes critical and transformative pedagogy? (Paulo Freire, Jim Cummins) Discuss why it is important, for student's academic success, that school administrators and teachers understand and respect students' cultural and linguistic differences. How and why bilingual and multicultural programs can make schooling a successful experience for immigrant and Latino students in general and for Puerto Rican students in particular.

After you write your essay, we'll be able to offer more help, if you give us specific questions. Having had many Puerto Rican students in class, the homework was not as important to them and because I had them as Spanish students, they thought they could not learn much. Therefore, the spelling was usually substandard and once they knew that was important for the overall grade, they usually paid more attention. Culturally the family is much more important and many of them had to stay home to babysit younger siblings as their parents worked.
