I just finished this, planning on using it for book clubs w my kids in the fall. On the eve of more ICE raids, when incarcerations for immigrants are increasingly more inhumane, it couldn’t be more timely. I can’t get it out of my head. Thank you +

I’m working on lit circle books for my sts in the fall. Personal narrative or realistic fiction in 1st person. I want Latinx protagonists, I have lots of female ones but I need some male ones. And they have to be in Spanish. Any ideas?

🤯: choose materials you can easily go both directions. You need to be able to scaffold up and down.

Talking about heritage learners in acquisitions classes- the heritage learners need to NOT be the last priority.

I kinda knew I was teaching the colonizer's language, because Spanish is not native to the Americas just as English is not, but when I heard it in my doc class from the Prof, I felt validated. Asked myself, do K-12 Spanish teachers realize that?

To be successful teaching heritage speakers, we need to meet our kids where they are, celebrate their strengths, and help them work towards growth while allowing ourselves to be vulnerable with them.

Why preventing heritage teacher burnout is so important—the stakes are higher for our heritage learners than for our language acquisition students.

I find myself saying to people that I teach Spanish Language Arts because when I say I teach "Heritage Spanish" or "Spanish for Spanish Speakers" there is more explanation involved... Am I the only one who does this??

I think it's important to know that "Hispanic" is an invented term, and our sts' home cultures can vary greatly. Mexicans are different than Puerto Ricans in many ways, for ex. If you have different nationalities in your school, get to know a bit about all of them

Make the purpose of your assignments clear to yourself and your students. That will ensure accurate work from them and accurate grades from you.

Sadly, grades drive our students’ performance. Grading something everyday allows students to be held accountable and gives them a sense of security over how they are doing

I’m thinking about using post-it summaries on books students read in class as an incentive to have parties in our class. Pushes them to read more and share what they read. Thoughts?
