The topic has gained traction in recent years, as the interest in bilingual education and the numbers of people speaking English as a second language have grown. Teachers play a vital role in advancing HL learning (HLL). This edited volume presents them with the knowledge and tools necessary to overcome common obstacles in HLL based on cutting-edge research. In twelve chapters, contributors address the various types of challenges faced in trying to transfer research findings into new teaching approaches and encourages teacher innovation. Part I reviews fundamental issues in curricular, teacher, and program development, while Part II addresses pedagogical strategies, techniques, and approaches. The book seeks to answer questions such as, What are the best ways to help HLL aquire language for use in professional settings? How should HL learners' skills be assessed? How should new HL programs be designed? How do we define HL learners? How do we prepare teachers to meet their needs? While many HLL books focus on Spanish, information on multiple languages is included in this book.

Palabra abierta, 2/e, is a theme-driven and process-based Spanish composition text designed to develop advanced students' critical-thinking skills and academic writing proficiency. Through a functional grammar approach students learn about a variety of genres, with a particular focus on the academic essay. Each chapter explores multiple aspects of a common theme through various written genres and teaches students about functional components that constitute each of the genres presented. Each chapter also includes one model essay that demonstrates the genre in which students will be asked to compose. Readings and activities provide students with the appropriate vocabulary, linguistic structures, and writing strategies to allow them to meaningfully engage in chapter topics as well as diversify and expand their writing skills. New! Streamlined grammar sections make the material more accessible to students. New! Coverage of Spanish influences in the U.S. focuses on the needs of heritage speakers, presenting characteristics of the language as used in bilingual situations. Variety of authentic texts introduces students to a wide range of genres, including poems, short stories, legends, newspaper and magazine articles, and essays, enabling them to address the same theme from differing points of view. Functional approach to grammar presents text-based grammar descriptions that enable students to see how the language is used in different contexts. For example, conjunctions are presented in the context of a short story that shows how they add to or change the meaning of the text. Streamlined coverage of the writing process begins with a functional analysis of the genre students are asked to compose, provides exercises to help students hone their skills, and then asks them to engage in the writing task. Process-writing approach focuses on high-interest themes presented through authentic reading selections and critical-thinking activities that students use in peer-editing tasks, group writing, and analysis of student samples. Critical-thinking support for each reading selection includes guided pre-reading activities in Acercándonos al texto, post-reading analysis in Interactuando con el texto, and post-reading/writing activities in Creando textos. Presentation of dialectal varieties exposes students to the diversity of the Spanish language.

An increasing number of U.S. Latinos are seeking to become more proficient in Spanish. The Spanish they may have been exposed to in childhood may not be sufficient when they find themselves as adults in more demanding environments, academic or professional. Heritage language learners appear in a wide spectrum of proficiency, from those who have a low level of speaking abilities, to those who may have a higher degree of bilingualism, but not fluent. Whatever the individual case may be, these heritage speakers of Spanish have different linguistic and pedagogical needs than those students learning Spanish as a second or foreign language. The members of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) have identified teaching heritage learners as their second greatest area of concern (after proficiency testing). Editors Ana Roca and Cecilia Colombi saw a great need for greater availability and dissemination of scholarly research in applied linguistics and pedagogy that address the development and maintenance of Spanish as a heritage language and the teaching of Spanish to U.S. Hispanic bilingual students in grades K-16. The result is Mi lengua: Spanish as a Heritage Language in the United States. Mi lengua delves into the research, theory, and practice of teaching Spanish as a heritage language in the United States. The editors and contributors examine theoretical considerations in the field of Heritage Language Development (HLD) as well as community and classroom-based research studies at the elementary, secondary, and university levels. Some chapters are written in Spanish and each chapter presents a practical section on pedagogical implications that provides practice-related suggestions for the teaching of Spanish as a heritage language to students from elementary grades to secondary and college and university levels.
