Overview

Description

Students, who come from diverse backgrounds, engage in structured group activities that offer opportunities to reflect on values and assumptions related to their linguistic and cultural heritage. We view films dealing with Mexican Americans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans and Colombians. Team projects planned and undertaken entirely by students consist of one of two options. The first is the creation of a class Web site that focuses on literature, history, politics, music and art. An alternative is to videotape interviews with Latino immigrants from the Boston area or with MIT students from Spanish-speaking countries.Spanish for Bilingual Students is an intermediate course designed principally for heritage learners, but which includes other students interested in specific content areas, such as US Latino immigration, identity, ethnicity, education and representation in the media. Linguistic goals include vocabulary acquisition, improvement in writing, and enhancement of formal communicative skills.
