Do you teach a heritage language in the U.S.? Do you ever struggle to find free resources, keep up with them and/or know what organizations you should join?
This is a constant issue I have and I am sure many of you do too. As I was doing research for a course I took this semester, I stumbled upon a treasure! An article titled Preparing Heritage Teachers to Work With Heritage Language Learners written by Dr. Ana Maria Schwartz Caballero (I really recommend that you read it!). In this article, she compiles all of the heritage language resources she is aware of, which is awesome! This came at the perfect time for me because I had just learned about Padlet (if you haven't used this free online program, you should look into it, super user-friendly and fun!). This motivated me to create a Padlet where I visually compiled all the resources Dr. Ana Maria Schwartz Caballero mentioned in her article and added others I was aware of relevant to heritage language pedagogy. I hope this is helpful for some of you! If you know of any other resources, conferences, books or bloggers I should add, please let me know! I will be updating it frequently.
Feliz Navidad :)
