Teaching the Speakers: Heritage Language Learners and the Classroom
Sat, April 9, 2011 • 10:00 AM - 1:30 PM • Mezes (MEZ) 1.306
Presentations at this one-day workshop will focus on one commonly-taught language (Spanish), and less-commonly taught language (Russian). The talks will address the growing necessity of integrating learners with varying degrees of prior exposure to the language into the curriculum, recognizing the different instructional needs, cultural perceptions, and affective factors of heritage language learners. Following the morning presentations, an hour-long open discussion will address any questions and comments.
