    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book examines the first year of a charter high school and presents a case-study of compulsory Spanish heritage language instruction with both a dominant and non-dominant Spanish teacher. The study also follows the same students to their humanities-English class, bringing into focus what works and what does not with this group of learners.
