SPAN 374 - Education Across Borders: Mexico and the United States

Many bilingual and Spanish language students in the U.S., California, and the Central Valley are from families who have had educational experiences in both the U.S. and Mexico, and who bring with them varying understandings of the role and functioning of formal education in both countries. This course explores differences in the educational systems of the two countries, the relationships between families and schools, and the resulting experiences of transmigrational students. Further it will examine language attitudes and policies affecting bilingual students in transmigrational North America, and globally, including bilingualism, language attitudes and identities, translanguaging, and language policy.
