Series Title: Bilingual Education
Description:

This book documents ongoing language shift to English among Latino
professionals in California. It then describes current instructional
practices used in the teaching of Spanish as an academic subject at the
high school and university levels to "heritage" language students who,
although educated entirely in English, acquired Spanish at home as a first
language. It specifically examines the potential contribution of these
instructional practices to the maintenance of Spanish.
