Success in the Heritage Spanish Classroom

About The Program:

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) and the Stanford World Language Project (SWLP) invite new and experienced teachers of Spanish for Heritage Learners to join this professional development course tailored to the pedagogical needs of the Heritage Spanish classroom!

The seminar series will focus on acquiring and sharing strategies for culturally sustaining pedagogy; establishing learning outcomes that draw on heritage learners’ foundational strengths; addressing issues of student motivation and identity; developing content on critical topics relating to both the wonder and importance of Latin America and the sociopolitical role of Spanish in the US; and reviewing, designing, and/or revising course materials and practices to align with Common Core State Standards, California World Language Content Standards, and AP themes.

Heritage Spanish Strand teachers will 

  • attend 5 day-long seminars on the Stanford campus taught by SWLP lead teachers with special topical presentations by CLAS-affiliated faculty
  • develop lesson or unit plans to serve as a resource for Heritage Spanish teachers
  • have the possibility of participating in 2 individualized virtual-coaching sessions with an instructional coach
