Service Learning & Teaching: A Cross-Cultural Experience--Analysis of Languages in a Private School in Nicaragua
Hopkins-Gillispie, Delphina
Current Issues in Middle Level Education, v17 n1 p1-11 2012
The service learning immersion experience in Central America benefitted preservice teachers, which resulted in a collaborative project on the analysis of languages spoken at the primary to middle school level. This study researches, collects data, and analyzes results from one school system in the country of Nicaragua in hopes of acquiring sufficient data to share and compare with school systems in the United States. The purpose of this study is to determine the number of students in a private primary-intermediate school who are bilingual or trilingual, investigate the various languages spoken within the school, study how the school system accommodates non-Spanish speaking students, and to learn as much as possible about teaching on the international level.
