Section Information for Fall 2021

FRLN 575 provides an overview of heritage language education in the US, including the ideological and policy contexts in which it is situated. Students learn about the linguistic and sociocultural characteristics of HL speakers as well as key issues in HL educational policy and practice, including the most prominent pedagogical models and approaches. We'll discuss a wide range of approaches to HL research, as well as the pedagogical implications of that research. The course is also designed to promote students’ critical analytical ability regarding the underlying assumptions of HL research studies and pedagogical proposals. For their final project, students can choose to focus on HL research, policy or pedagogy. Taught in English but students may submit written work in Spanish.
