The two primary outcomes for the proposed project are a positive learning experience for approximately 100 Portuguese heritage students in grades 2-11 ranging in language ability from novice to intermediate, along with a professional development experience for 15 Portuguese language and culture educators that will increase their language and cultural knowledge as well as their pedagogical content knowledge to successfully implement standards-based language instruction in their classrooms. The students will participate in approximately 75 hours of instruction in a three-week program that will be incorporated into the Hilmar Unified School District's summer school program.
