heritage Spanish speakers are fluent in oral Spanish, but vary greatly
in their level of literacy. Those with educational gaps need help in
developing their reading and writing proficiency and also in grammar and
academic and literary vocabulary. Practical, research-based activities
for high school Hispanic students demonstrate ways to teach literary
concepts, language skills, and learning strategies for reading
comprehension and writing in Spanish. Ways to differentiate instruction
in mixed literacy level classes are suggested.
