The session provides teachers of heritage Spanish speakers with research-based instructional strategies proven effective when teaching heritage Spanish speakers. Participants learn about the influence of culture on teaching and learning: cross-cultural learning on cultural identity, the transcultural experience, cultural competency and mediation, and cross-cultural communication. The session also explores six categories of language learning strategies: cognitive, metacognitive, memory-related, compensatory, affective, and social (Oxford, 2001).
