Commentary: Pedagogical Implications of Experimental SNS Research
Carreira, Maria; Potowski, Kim
Heritage Language Journal, v8 n1 p134-151 Spr 2011
This special issue of the "Heritage Language Journal", guest edited by Silvina Montrul, unites four papers on different aspects of heritage Spanish speakers' linguistic abilities. In this commentary, we reexamine these important contributions with an eye toward implications for instruction and toward general trends for the field. In particular, we discuss the contributions of Montrul and Perpinan and of Bowles as they relate to classroom instruction of heritage speakers, and those of Bolger and Zapata in terms of current and future trends in the field. In the discussion that follows, we abbreviate "heritage speaker" as HS and "second language learner" as L2 learner. (Contains 9 notes and 1 table.)
