Introductory instructional unit for native speaking Spanish students in an upper level Spanish classroom
This capstone examines views of sociologists and educational theorists in order to answer the question: How can I raise self-esteem and empower native speaking Spanish students through success in the Spanish class? The instructional unit created in this capstone is an introductory unit that celebrates and acknowledges heritage learners' backgrounds, and provides tools to enhance literacy in their own language. Students will learn about the different ethnic groups in the Hispanic world that shaped the current culture and language, and will engage in meaningful activities to promote understanding and respect for all varieties of the Spanish language through the use of authentic materials.
