Description

This section is a three-credit course. The Spanish Language Internship Program (SLIP) aims to connect Spanish-speaking students with partnered community based organizations and schools to provide remote service learning opportunities with the Latino Community. Through remote volunteering efforts, students will gain insight into the culture, economic needs and gain a better understanding of the Latino experience. SLIP offers this unique opportunity for students to engage in experiential learning related to community service work as well as improve and apply their Spanish speaking and writing skills. Remote placements are available for all levels of Spanish proficiency.

Please email Teresa Sanchez-Snell, tssnell@umich.edu, for more information.

Course Requirements:

Students are required to volunteer remotely, 3 hours per week at their site, attend synchronous weekly Spanish discussion sessions, and submit weekly journals. Readings are assigned each week for discussion sessions to highlight Latino Culture, current events, and issues. Students will have weekly written assignments, complete a Family History project and will submit a Final Reflection Paper.

Intended Audience:

Course will be offered remotely.

Class Format:

As a DC (Distance due to COVID) course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning and welcomes entirely online participation. Weekly discussion sessions will require synchronous participation and all assignments will be submitted electronically via Canvas.
