Presenters/Papers:

  1. Raul Frederick-Diaz, California State University at Northridge
    This work tries to define the Californio Spanish dialect from XIX century until our days, its transformation and how it survived the coexistence with English in the same linguistic social environment
  2. Gloria N Oliveri, "California State University, Northridge"
    This paper intends to show that in California the Spanish language predominates in the activities of the daily life of the Latin population, linguistically and daily.
  3. Patriccia Ordonez, University of California, Riverside
    In this paper, I use counterstorytelling to interrupt the dominant narrative that students classified as English Learners can only navigate the school system using English only. I present the counter-narrative for California EL students who tend to have increased psychosocial and cognitive development due being bilingual.
  4. Anna-Lena Stift, University of California, Riverside
    This paper reviews literature on bilingual mathematics education and classroom discourse using two California middle school mathematics teachers as an example. The study addresses the achievement gap between white students and students of Hispanic origin struggling with English, suggesting the need for professional development programs in bilingual classrooms.
