SPECIAL Section of SPAN 228/Heritage Speakers

SPAN 228 – Section A – CRN: 47532

In order to respond to the specific educational needs of Spanish heritage speakers, SIP is offering a designated section of Spanish Composition this spring.

Fully online course for Spanish/English bilingual students who grew up speaking/hearing Spanish at home. This course will give students the opportunity to build upon their existing linguistic and cultural knowledge and will help them to develop their academic writing skills in Spanish. Students will be able to improve their control of grammar and written expression (including spelling) through weekly online assignments as well as essays and journals. Topics discussed will be related to Hispanics in the US (immigration, bilingualism, etc.).
