As the Hispanic population continues to grow, schools receive greater numbers of students who are native or heritage speakers of Spanish who come to us with diverse cultural backgrounds and widely varying linguistic abilities. This workshop will address the variation found within this population as well as information on the contributions they bring to the classroom. We will discuss ways to create a positive environment where Hispanic students feel welcomed and comfortable, regardless of background or prior language knowledge.
