502    Thesis (Ph.D.)--The University of Wisconsin - Madison, 
520    The author takes the reader on a journey of methodological
       inquiry through narrative and play format to uncover an 
       immigrant family's experience in the United States school 
520    Through the analysis of special education records of 
       family members, and narratives in written and oral forms, 
       the author shows how the identity of an individual, family
       and a group of people can be constructed and maintained 
       through the communal contextualization of a school and 
       special education discourse at the site of a 
       multidisciplinary conference (MDC) 
520    The project is composed through what the author calls 
       Mestizo Thought and Literacy, a composition theory 
       grounded in the conquest of Mexico, the outgrowth of a new
       people and the space they found themselves as part of two 
       worlds, two pasts, two collective memories, individual 
       lived memory and defining themselves in that space. The 
       outcome is stories lined together to form an ongoing 
       narrative of a people no longer wanting to live in the 
       hybrid world offered to them. The author is but one of 
       these voices
