Los siguientes materiales han sido creados para usarlos en cursos de hablantes del español que aprendieron el idioma escuchándolo en casa (Heritage speakers). Se trata de un curriculum que está en constante evolución, pero espero que les sea de utilidad para sus clases.
La filosofía detrás de estas unidades es:
- Fortalecer la capacidad de los estudiantes de usar registros formales y distinguirlos de los coloquiales.
- Fortalecer la identidad cultural de los estudiantes
- Entender las diferencias entre el "espanglish" y aprender a "traducirlo" para alguien que no hable inglés.
- Aprender sobre la diversidad lingüística y cultural de los países hispanos.
- Mejorar el conocimiento metalingüístico

This course is designed as a survey course to familiarize students with computer concepts including software and hardware, software applications, and living online leading towards digital computer literacy. Instruction in this course is provided through demonstration and discussion. Class time will be provided for practicing concepts as well as working through assignments; however, additional time outside of class will be essential to improve skills and complete the assignments.
The following recipes, or games, are intended to be used as reference and study for the college course: Improvisation. This format has been set up to help with ease of quick learning and immediate application. Bon Appétit !

In this action research project, the benefits and challenges of using Open Educational
Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) were examined for the CS120 Digital
Literacy course at the LinnBenton Community College (LBCC) in Albany, Oregon. Two types of
research data were gathered, quantitative and qualitative.
The quantitative data were based on the end-of-quarter metrics for the six established
CS120 course outcomes (see appendix A). The participants for the quantitative data are the
students from the eighteen CS120 sections which were taught during the 2016 calendar year
(winter, spring, and fall). While the ten winter and spring CS120 sections used a publisher
textbook and companion website material, the eight fall CS120 sections used OER material.
For the qualitative data, a student questionnaire was used (see appendix B). The
participants of the qualitative data are the twenty-eight students in my two fall CS120 sections
which read and signed the Student Consent Form (See appendix D).
The findings of this study indicated:
1) The quantitative data, based on course outcomes, were very positive. The data revealed
that all six course outcomes improved in the fall quarter and each student saved $162 on
2) The qualitative data, based on a questionnaire, were also positive. The majority of the
students stated that the OER-based course is well structured, accessible, easy to use, and
the content covers all six course outcomes. One concern is that 57% of the students stated
they missed having a physical textbook.
Examples and quizzes to reinforce understanding of APA and MLA style and formatting. A quiz bank is available in XHTML or Moodle XML format. These can be imported into a learning management system for students to check their understanding.
"This conversation between Jon Carnahan, President of Linn-Benton Community College, and Herb Hammond and Russ Tripp, leaders in the formation and early years of the college, was recorded in one sitting at Mr. Carnahan's home on February 6, 1992 in Albany Oregon."
The purpose of this collection analysis is to ensure the Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC) Library’s collection meets the needs of their patrons by providing reliable and up-to-date materials, representing a variety of opinions. This analysis will provide insight into the Library’s physical collection. While academic libraries are typically less interested in the age of the material or their circulation, and more interested in significant, in-depth materials, smaller libraries tend to be more focused on the usefulness of their collection.
