Currently, Latinos are the largest minority group in the US. Historically, they have been an intrinsic part of the United States’ history making up an important part of the work force, military, education, entertainment and government. Despite their successful contributions to US society, Latinos have been portrayed as second-class citizens, and as a threat to the country’s identity and development. The Latino community has been fighting against these prejudgments and has been able to organize, create and develop strong organizations attracting allies from a wide spectrum of social, political, religious and educational institutions. PALMA (Proyecto Avance: Latino Mentoring Association) is a student organization created in the Spanish program at the Residential College with the objective of connecting Spanish learning students with Latino families. Students in this class become PALMA tutors and learn pedagogical methods and theories with emphasis on intercultural teaching. A significant part of course is dedicated to review and analyze academic literature on race and ethnicity, racism and discrimination and their effects on the Latino community.

Course Requirements:

This is a seminar type course which meets once a week. Students will work as tutors twice a week for 90 minutes on a schedule decided by students and tutees.

Intended Audience:

This course is open to students who have passed the RC Spanish Proficiency Exam, completed SPA 277 or received instructor permission.
