Hispanic Studies 308: Culturas y Viviencias: Spanish as a Heritage Language I

Credits 4

Designed for heritage learners of Spanish, this course focuses on holistically enhancing abilities in Spanish while connecting language use with students’ identities, ethnic and national cultures, and the broader Hispanic communities of Walla Walla and the world. Under the theme “vivencias,” or life experiences, the focus is placed on experiential and project-based learning. Class activities may include hosting a radio show on KWCW, producing and showcasing artwork or film projects on campus, volunteering in local schools, or collaboration with student affinity groups and other campus entities. The goal is to enhance language abilities by applying existing competencies in culturally and socially meaningful contexts. Course taught in Spanish.
