Empowering Learners of Spanish

ELS is a collection of activities based on critical pedagogies that serves to introduce students to a range of concepts in sociolinguistics and critical inquiry into language ideologies. Some of the activities are written in both English and Spanish, and resources are also in both languages. Working in two languages will allow students to reproduce the linguistic practices of bilinguals. Heritage learners of Spanish should find these practices familiar, and students learning Spanish as a second language will benefit from the scaffolding of using some English.
