Teachers’ Raciolinguistic Ideologies In The Shl Classroom: Considerations For Shl Teacher Development, Valeria Ochoa, Sergio Loza 2024 University of Oregon

Teachers’ Raciolinguistic Ideologies In The Shl Classroom: Considerations For Shl Teacher Development, Valeria Ochoa, Sergio Loza

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Abstract: As Latinx enrollment in US university Spanish-language courses continues to rise (Beaudrie & Marrero-Rivera, forthcoming), numerous studies detail the transformative potential of SHL pedagogy for US Latinxs as an educational experience (e.g., Holguín Mendoza, 2018; Leeman, 2005). Recent progress has been driven by the study of language ideologies as a critical area of inquiry to reckon with the disparities that US Latinxs face within SHL education (Loza & Beaudrie, 2022). Such disparities are predicated on dominant raciolinguistic ideologies that often impose idealized language varieties and identities on Latinx youth (Barillas Chón, 2022). Although critical materials, curriculum, and pedagogical approaches …

Cuestiones De Lengua Desde Una Perspectiva Multimodal, Macarena Llamas Molina, Sofía Sánchez Moreno

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

En nuestra vida diaria estamos expuestos a textos multimodales, mediante los cuales construimos significado. No obstante, en las clases de lenguas, especialmente en las de español como lengua de herencia, no siempre se brinda la posibilidad de interactuar con estos textos, puesto que predomina el elemento lingüístico frente al visual, auditivo, gestual, espacial y multimodal (Perry, 2012; New London Group, 1996), lo cual no representa la realidad multimodal a la que los estudiantes están expuestos (Zapata, 2017). El término “multiliteracidades” abarca tanto la multimodalidad de los textos que nos rodean como la diversidad local y la conexión global (New London …


Unveiling Critical Language Awareness Through Tiktok: Fostering Community, Dialogue And Student Perspectives In The Spanish Heritage Language Classroom, Sarah Henderson 2024 Arizona State University

Unveiling Critical Language Awareness Through Tiktok: Fostering Community, Dialogue And Student Perspectives In The Spanish Heritage Language Classroom, Sarah Henderson

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

“What are the students saying?” examines students’ reactions towards critical language awareness-laden media presented in the Spanish as a heritage language (SHL) classroom. Critical language awareness (CLA) emphasizes how “language practices are invested with power relations and ideological processes which people are often unaware of” (Fairclough, 1992, p.7). In the classroom, CLA manifests in ways that “helps students understand how language prejudice is intertwined with broader social hierarchies and power relations. Further, it seeks to promote students’ development of critical resources for resisting and challenging those hierarchies” (Leeman 2018, p. 348). The present classroom-based study furthers CLA research by advancing …

“Su Español Es Incorrecto”: Challenging Spanish Teachers’ And Students’ Linguistic Beliefs Through Cla In A Dialectology Course, Silvia Perez-Cortes 2024 Rutgers University - Camden

“Su Español Es Incorrecto”: Challenging Spanish Teachers’ And Students’ Linguistic Beliefs Through Cla In A Dialectology Course, Silvia Perez-Cortes

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

With the number of Spanish heritage classes and bilingual students being on the rise (Beaudrie, Amezcua & Loza, 2021), there is a pressing need to incorporate pedagogical practices that foster inclusivity and challenge dominant language ideologies (Holguín-Mendoza, 2018; Leeman, 2012; Lacorte & Magro, 2021; inter alia). This necessity is particularly dire at the K-12 level, where teachers ­oftentimes lack the training to deconstruct their own –as well as their students’– linguistic beliefs to offer a more socially-conscious instruction (Hudgens-Henderson & Hackman, 2021).

Following the work of Beaudrie et al. (2021) and Wilson & Marcin (2022), this study examines …

Los hablantes de lengua heredada en tiempos de la cultura snack

Los formatos breves multimodales presentes en el ecosistema mediático brindan muestras de lengua auténticas, en un rico abanico de registros, que favorecen el desarrollo lingüístico de los hablantes de lengua de herencia. De allí que, su inclusión como recursos didácticos genera la posibilidad de crear actividades motivadoras y significativas para este colectivo de estudiantes.

Resumen

Diseñar un programa para hablantes de lengua de herencia requiere tener presente, ante todo, que constituyen un grupo heterogéneo que abarca desde hablantes nativos hasta hablantes de tercera generación y más, si fuera el …

This panel brings together five Latina Spanish heritage language (SHL) educators and scholars to center our identities as fundamental to our roles as researchers and teachers in the field of Spanish as a heritage language. Drawing from Chicana feminist epistemologies, we assert that our Latina identities, histories, and positionalities are central to SHL past and present.

Exploring Future-Time Expression And Generational Status In Spanish-English Heritage Bilingual Speakers: An Online Study, Adriana Gordillo Barahona, Anel Brandl, Pietro Pesce

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Preliminary findings suggest generational status affects acceptability of progressive and present indicative forms. The study sheds light on convergent simplification and generational impact on Spanish-English bilingual heritage language performance.

Keywords: future-time expressions, heritage bilingual speakers, periphrastic future, English progressive aspect, generational influence.

Expressing Diminutive Meaning In Heritage Spanish: The Role Of Culturally Appropriate Community Norms, Abel Cruz

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Following Reynoso’s (2001, 2005) framework where culture plays a crucial role in the analysis of diminutive morphology, the present study analyzes the socio-pragmatic functions of the Spanish diminutive in the speech of two U.S.-Mexico border regions differing by degree of bilingualism. The first dataset consists of 49 sociolinguistic interviews from a Spanish–English bilingual community in Southern Arizona, U.S. where Spanish is the heritage language, provided in the CESA Corpus (Carvalho, 2012). The second dataset consists of 18 sociolinguistic interviews of predominantly monolingual Spanish speakers from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, provided in the PRESEEA Corpus (https://preseea.uah.es/). All bilingual informants completed a …

Pedagogical Principles In Action: Open Educational Resources For The Teaching Of Spanish As A Heritage Language, Amy Aldrete

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

"Pedagogical principles in action: Open educational resources for the teaching of Spanish as a heritage language"

Keywords: Spanish as a Heritage Language, OER, textbooks, frameworks

The emergence and expansion of Open Education Resources (OER) create new opportunities for stakeholders at all levels of education; they facilitate social inclusion and access to education, an essential human right, due to low production costs and availability (UNESCO, 2019; Farrow, 2016). In addition, OER allow teachers to share and edit teaching resources and to adapt them to the specific needs of their students (COERLL, 2021). In the area of Spanish as a Heritage Language …

Teaching Philosophy Classes In Spanish Or Bilingually In The South Texas Borderlands, Alex Stehn, Cynthia Paccacerqua, Danny Marrero, Christopher Gomez, Dania López García, Katherine Christoffersen

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Situated in the deep south Texas borderlands, over 90% of our students are Hispanic or Latino/a/x and the majority are bilingual. That is, most students enrolled across every course at our university are heritage speakers of Spanish. As professional philosophers, we believe that teaching these students should involve engaging them as the bilingual and bicultural students they are while helping them develop philosophical biliteracy. Our panelists are from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds (native speaker, heritage speaker, L2 speaker) but all of us are bilingual, bicultural, and biliterate faculty who have been working together as a team to design and …

In this presentation, I will show how instructors can creatively adapt and remix resources to serve their students’ needs.
