Spanish as a Heritage Language

This workshop addressed the issues and challenges of developing and maintaining Spanish as a heritage language in the United States, with a particular focus in our Laredo, Texas community and the border dialect of Spanish. This session was designed in response to the growing need for scholarly material and pedagogy in the teaching of Spanish as a heritage language to Laredo bilingual students in grades K-16. Theoretical principles related to the acquisition and maintenance of Spanish by U.S.-born speakers, community and classroom-based research studies, as well as practice-related suggestions for the teaching of Spanish as a heritage language at the elementary, secondary, and university level were discussed.
