The economic and social conditions in Michigan have attracted many families from different Latin American countries, which have led to a growing Latino community in the Ann Arbor area. Children of these families are enrolled in the city school system and for many, succeeding academically is a difficult task due to a series of factors. This independent study will be based on the work carried out by PALMA, a University of Michigan student organization that focuses on helping Latino children to improve their learning skills and succeed in school. This course is oriented towards advanced students of Spanish who want to use their language skills by directly and personally engaging with members of the Latino community in Ann Arbor. Students will hold tutoring lessons twice a week and will meet once a week to discuss assigned articles and debate specific topics and situations dealing with their experiences as tutors. A weekly journal and a final report will summarize the different experiences and challenges of tutoring, and will allow the students to analyze different learning strategies, problems and solutions obtained during the course in order to make well-supported recommendations directed towards improving the results of the community work carried out by Palma.
